This morning I woke with an unction to go to Youtube. Didn't know why, but I did. The first video I see in my suggestion list is this amazing video by Jessie J, "R.O.S.E. Confessional."
I realized after watching it why I had the feeling to go to YouTube.
These words, these feelings are words that I have expressed so many times in private and to hear someone else speak these words gave me such peace, yet inspiration. Not only, on so many levels, were these words true they are connected to what I've been working on for the past months and resonated with my reasons for doing so.
The creative mind is connected to other creative minds, near and far. So I find it not strange that even the visual direction of how she presented these words were very similar to what I recently shot.
It's beautiful to know how, we as artist, are coming back to what made us love this to begin with. What's even more beautiful, is that I don't feel like Im the only one.
Music has always been the thing that I was easily able to express myself through. The only thing that set me free, released my troubles. The only thing that gave me confront when I thought no one else understood. It's always been so personal to me.
