Make. Good. Art.


I've been away for a while and I'm slowly trying to revive my online journal. I will update you guys soon, I promise! So far, things are looking good and words couldn't describe how thankful I am for all that's happening and will happen in my life. Wee!!!

Sharing with you Neil Gaiman's 2012 Commencement speech to the University of Philadelphia Arts because it gives me the push I need whenever I feel "not good enough" ;)

This is really great. You should enjoy it.

And I didn't. Best advice I got that I ignored. Instead I worried about it. I worried about the next deadline, the next idea, the next story. There wasn't a moment for the next fourteen or fifteen years that I wasn't writing something in my head, or wondering about it. And I didn't stop and look around and go, this is really fun. I wish I'd enjoyed it more. It's been an amazing ride. But there were parts of the ride I missed, because I was too worried about things going wrong, about what came next, to enjoy the bit I was on.
That was the hardest lesson for me, I think: to let go and enjoy the ride, because the ride takes you to some remarkable and unexpected places.

This is for YOU, for US. 

So be wise, because the world needs more wisdom, and if you cannot be wise, pretend to be someone who is wise, and then just behave like they would.
And now go, and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here. Make good art.

Spreading good vibes,

Geli :)
