Why Are You Here?

Why am I here?  Why are YOU here?  Maybe because we both want to explore creative ideas?  Maybe because we’re both starving artists?  I don’t know about you, but I am here at the suggestion of my life coach.  Life coach?!  Whoa.  Lost some of you already, I’m sure.  I have a life coach because I am indolent.  I’m not untalented, I’m not fearful, but I do lack that final “permission” to go forward.  Call it fear of failure.  Call it fear of the unknown.  Whatever it is, it’s fear and a life coach helps me calm that fear and make positive steps towards becoming the artist I want to be.  So this blog will more or less follow the twists and turns of my attempts to define myself as a creative person, while losing the shackles of a more conventional, albeit financially more secure, life.  I hope you find something useful or helpful in my thoughts and experiences.

About tropicaltheartist

You can find out more about me here: https://michaeltopic.wordpress.com/. There aren’t many people that exist in that conjunction of art, design, science and engineering, but this is where I live. I am an artist, a musician, a designer, a creator, a scientist, a technologist, an innovator and an engineer and I have a genuine, deep passion for each field. Most importantly, I am able to see the connections and similarities between each field of intellectual endeavour and apply the lessons I learn in one discipline to my other disciplines. To me, they are all part of the same continuum of creativity. I write about what I know, through my blogs, in the hope that something I write will resonate with a reader and help them enjoy their own creative life more fully. I am, in summary, a highly creative individual, but with the ability to get things done efficiently. Not all of these skills are valued by the world at large, but I am who I am and this is me. The opinions stated here are my own and not necessarily the opinion or position of my employer.
