An article, on what? Am I capable of writing such a thing? I could try…you know, writing has changed my life, for the better. I can not say however, that I have been writing my whole life. I only started when I was nineteen years old. Through circumstances in my control- though terribly executed, I gained first-hand

knowledge, of how the art of writing (poetry to be exact) can be an effective tool in communicating with others, how someone could feel about a certain thing. This person in my case, let it all be known!
I think about one of my favorite artists currently: Michelle Branch, and I hear her music, and she tells so much of herself. Seemingly, the musical sounds all blends around a feeling that someone (like me) could have. Like somehow, music for her, is my poetry- to communicate with others, what am I feeling. To me, it is quite strong of a decision to display such emotion, and be at risk of being a fool in the image of others. But an artist (me and others) know the risks, knows the vulnerabilities that can exist when you express yourself creatively. For me as well, I communicate better when I am writing. Shy, yet has a quiet expressive personality- that is me to a very certain extent.
An artist’s job is to make someone think, make someone think about love, other subjects and stuff like that. A strong viewpoint: an artist has to develop a movie, create a scene, mix those ingredients that will stay with someone, to grab that person’s attention that will make them come back again. Don’t forget that artists are their own business, money maker, and promoter. They have to do what they have to do, to make money, so people can continue to see their films, buy that painting, eat that food. Me, I am somewhat a businessman and the business all in one. Seems that these days, I do a rather lousy job of promoting my business, but that is here and there. All artists though, seek to express themselves, to make people think. That is the number one job of an artist, to make someone think. And that is why I became an artist, to make people think about what they are doing on an everyday basis. And I love it so much. Every artist, loves to get people talking you could say. And I hope to do the same as every other great artist who has lived, and who are living today.
