Think Of Yourself As A Verb, Not A Noun (Oscar Wilde)

Yes, I know. This post is fashionable late. But in my poor defense: I have been extremely busy. Surviving, drinking, cleaning out my closet, pleasing most desirable sluts. Taking on too many projects. Making friends for life. What can you do?

Time for a change

One day, when I meet true love, I will change. Like in 50 years or so. Maybe. Time will tell.

Also this website needs an extreme make-over. The focus needs to be on painting. The site seems to have a life of its own. It will never be finished. Like life itself, it will just end. Nobody knows when. I’ve got some ideas about the changes that need to be made. However, no need for deadlines. Heaven.

Never enough projects

It’s okay. I love being busy. It keeps the demons away.

To quote Stephen Fry: “Oscar Wilde said that if you know what you want to be, then you inevitably become it – that is your punishment, but if you never know, then you can be anything.

There is a truth to that. We are not nouns, we are verbs. I’m not a thing – an actor, a writer – I’m a person who does things – I write, I act – and I never know what I’m going to do next.

I think you can be imprisoned if you think of yourself as a noun.”
