Would you?

Would you still do art if no one bought it or could see it?

Would you still write your blog if no one read it?

Would you still sing if no one heard it?

Would you still make your music if no one could listen to it?

Would you still create if it was only for you?

Is what you do for others or for yourself?

The joy is in the doing as it takes place now.

Craft versus mass

By Philip Dodson

Our world is now completely dominated by mass.

Small, crafted ‘art’ has been industrialised in the mass market production of goods and services.

The people involved in that process are no more than cogs in the machine and are denied the human pleasure of crafting something special, unique, different, and a work of love.

We are the poorer for mass in every way.

If you get an opportunity in life to craft something then take it.

It’s a magical world when we create rather than simply fulfil a process.
