one of the ways that I believe people express their appreciation to the rest of humanity is to make something wonderful and put it out there
and you never you never meet the people
you never shake their hands
you never hear their story or tell yours
but somehow in the act of making something with a great deal of care and love > something’s transmitted there and it’s a way of expressing to the rest of our species our deep appreciation.
I love this so much. When I create things I take pride in it and put a great deal of care and love into it. That’s why I find the statement, “You are not your $creation” so offensive.
