OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.
To understand that what you do is worthless, at least in monetary terms, to most people, is hard. To continue anyway is usually naive. It equals accepting that no matter what beauty and meaning your work brings into the world, you might still starve doing it.
What does it mean about you when you have the choice between spending your days simply being and barely surviving or working yourself into an emotional breakdown and barely surviving, and you still get up and do your work?
It was one of those days when all my dreams felt pointless.
Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
“Physical distancing remains one of the key strategies to curb this pandemic.”
Dreams are never pointless, Karina. They are the reason for our being. Keep on doing what you are doing. It is so necessary to bring beauty into this world. It is our duty – even when we starve in doing so. Stay strong x
