In my profile of this website, ‘a bit about me’ I shared the episode how the image of a big bad wolf began occupying my mind and trying so hard to convince me to create ‘him.’ Don’t mean to sound ungratified. Actually, I am very indebted to Mr. Wolf for having emerged into my head and tested my bravery. To create something. A challenge I have never dreamt of taking on because I decided early on in my life I don’t mix with creativity. Those special people out there, so artistically talented, gifted, extremely fortunate, are allowed to be creative.
Looking back, I realise the reason why I was miserably conscious about my inability to be creative was due to my upbringing. I knew exactly how I make my mum proud. Praises and recognitions about me from neighbours, relatives, and basically everyone in the world. Hence, the thought of being judged by others is a big deal and somehow it has shaped a vulnerable foundation in my psyche. It affected me a great deal. One of the Buddhist principles teach us not to be swayed by Eight Winds, namely – prosperity, honour, praise, pleasure, decline, disgrace, censure, suffering. Yep, not easy but this is important.
I must say I am happy what I do now. I create random art pictures and write nonchalant blogs about whatever the wisdom tells me. I am free because I can finally follow my heart. My first blog in this website was entitled ‘Can you find Mr. Wolf?’ with a chaotic picture hiding a big bad wolf in it. Originally, he was chasing a little red riding hood (not as his food), but since I made them rather huge I had to separate them. Consequently, the riding hood is appearing in this picture, fed up being chased and screaming ‘basta!’ to everything surrounding her. So you say, but I would like to continue my creation, if I may…Miss…
