Pick up many books aimed at young children and the first page inside says “This Book Belongs To…” with a space below to fill in a name.
What message is this sending?
That ownership of physical stuff is important? That we need to publicly declare what is ours?
How well do we do this ownership thing as adults, as artists?
Who do our lives belong to?
If you opened the book of your creative life, would it be clear from page one it belonged to you?
Or are you acting out someone else’s fairy tale?
