A message board was condemning my current path. The Globalgasm idea, specifically, spurred several people to think my interests of late are too sexual. “We miss the old John” one person said.
While I appreciate the feedback, I can’t let it affect my decisions too much. Life is about new experiences, growing, and risk taking.
Picasso did some great work during his blue period. And I’m sure there were tons of people who said, “We miss the old Pablo” when he started messing with African mask-inspired art.
But without his experiments with African art, there would be no evolution to cubism.
