So – with all the added pressure with my work deadlines and event deadlines, I am hitting a slight case of overwhelm … when I feel that coming on — I check in with myself to verify why I am doing what I am doing? For BORG2, I do this for the Art.
I have always been a creative type and have played with graphic design (before the computers), photography, writing, and some painting but there was far to many creative outlets out there for me to stay interested in one thing for to long and I was far more interested in other artists.
What I realized my personal interest is not the Art but the process and that one moment when a person is energized by the spark of creativity — my favorite question what was going on when you thought of that?
I look for an understanding, in the hopes of creating environments that inspire others… this concept grew even further when Joel died ( the man who named me TheNetworkGirl ) the week before his death he was energized with the prospects of playing with a new band … a year after the date of his death TheNetworkGirl.com launched with the goal to encompass inspiration in order to inspire and keep that energy that he had a live for all time.
So that is why, I am here and why Art (creativity) is so important for my life. For some reason he keeps coming up in my mind during this process as well as experiences from when I was a kid (the last time I was actively involved in groups)
I hope that this is more than a battle of the BORGs, and that other people are as passionate about Art as I am or at least that the Art has effected their lives in some way.
