  1. I don’t know my friend…My father was a creative “Mad Man”. I grew up in advertising. He would bring home sample books of paper…like riches from the Orient. He also told he’d “Break my fingers if I picked up a pencil”
    We’re all aware of the hype. It’s a reality …so let’s just use it for something worthwhile.

    • empty

      was the feeling

      after studying / working

      almost 20 years

      in the industry

      ~

      creating temptations

      we didn’t really need want or could afford

      99% of what we buy is thrown away within 6 months

      ~

      leaving

      was the first step

      in regaining meaning

      real passon

      in my life

      ~

      again

      just my perspective

  2. I totally understand…I saw what it did to my father working in that madness. I was conflicted for years growing up with the knowledge of subliminal cuts.
    But there is a difference between working for an industry and using your skills to communicate. It’s not a mask unless one is dishonest.
    This is where the deep work comes in….for everyone. ! xxoo

    • I loved the knowledge

      understanding

      creative process

      the craft

      ~

      but usually

      I was only happy

      with one or two projects

      a year

      ~

      I learned

      I grew as much as I could

      then dissolved

  3. I remember when I was 11 I was put in an advanced class to look at truth in advertising, once a week, for 3 months. Thank goodness I did it young, it paved the way for my need to find truth in all things and disbelieve the hype. Although we are never truly immune to the ideology of a greater life regardless of the means.
