End of the year reflections
Why do I write? The question comes to me often, and is also one of the most frequent questions I get. It always stumps me a bit, but I know it to well. I write because there will never exist a day or a reality where I can´t. There can be days and even weeks where I am occupied by “life” where I am not able to write, but I have to keep that to a minimum. I feel awful, almost sick, the moment I am not able, or are hindered to write. A life without writing would not be much of a life for me. My writing sessions are my time off, my way out, the creation of a universe where only I exist. When I write, nothing else matters, and that feels absolutely amazing. When I make music it is a little bit different, I have the same experience writing the lyrics to the song, but afterwards I have to amend it to fit into the schemes of my musical genre. So I have to walk back and forth between the universes to make it fit, but it is always the writing that feels the best, it is the place of freedom and space.
The other reason why I write moves more towards the reader and the listener. Ever since I started writing, I have had the vision about the ONE, that one listener that feels something good, bad and connect to his or her emotions within the minutes reading or listening to my work. If I can write or perform something that makes the listener or reader just as free and emotional as I do while creating it, I have achieved more than I could ever dream of. I have to make one thing clear though, I do not write to change peoples view on life or opinions, I write to make them feel, and if that gives them another perspective on life, so be it. I do not write for others, I do not write for affection or fame, I write for myself, I write for my own good, I write for my own sanity. Then I share my thoughts with the world, and let the world let it sink in.
This was some late december reflections that I wanted to share with you, hope you all will have a wonderful new years eve and I will see you in 2014
