Chuck Close on creativity
The rest of this quote is glorious as well:
“Inspiration is for amateurs — the rest of us just show up and get to work. And the belief that things will grow out of the activity itself and that you will — through work — bump into other possibilities and kick open other doors that you would never have dreamt of if you were just sitting around looking for a great ‘art idea.’ And the belief that process, in a sense, is liberating and that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel every day. Today, you know what you’ll do, you could be doing what you were doing yesterday, and tomorrow you are gonna do what you did today, and at least for a certain period of time you can just work. If you hang in there, you will get somewhere.”
Normally I dont reblog these things, but this has been especially true to me this year.
Adding to this with Nick Cave’s quote
“Inspiration is a word used by people who aren’t really doing anything. I go into my office every day that I’m in Brighton and work. Whether I feel like it or not is irrelevant.” Inspiration is nice, but if you only work when it strikes, you’re going to be an unhappy artist. This is especially true if you want to earn a living at it; you don’t hear about surgeons getting “surgeon’s block” or garbage men getting “garbage men’s block.” There are assuredly days when the surgeon doesn’t want to be removing gall-bladders, but she does it anyway, because that’s her job.”
Oh this is extra excellent.
This is the quote that was on the “last piece of advice” that karen gave me.

This is a nice break from ander trade
People do not have to be toxic to everyone to be toxic to you
Your experiences are not validated or erased depending on how your abuser treats other people
“nice” people can still be abusive
In fact, many of them are only abusive to ONE person, which makes it easier because they’re “a great person” to everyone else and no one believes the one victim.
Fucking thank you
No longer will the Social Security Administration require surgery to change a person’s gender within their database.
Following guidelines put forward by both the federal government for passport changes, and many States’ DMV, individuals can have their gender changed by sending a letter from their medical provider (a sample is shown within the following link) https://secure.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0110212200
This is Huge.
