because they're not right in the head
personally, i've always liked a challenge. i think i've been drawn to art because there are infinite ways within it that i can push myself. and since i'm tone deaf and klutzy and i don't really like to draw, i've stuck with writing. it was kind of a fun game to play... seeing how well and how briefly i could say what i wanted to say. recently, i've lost all interest in writing, so i've decided to hang it up for awhile. perhaps it will come back someday and i will again feel the need to carve out pictures with words, but for the time being, i read books with five-year-olds and go to meetings and listen to teenagers tell me about what's going on at school and i'm overwhelmed and tired all the time. and i love it.
