Ever feel like you don't fit in? Is it a prerequisite for artists to feel like outcasts? I think it starts with breeding. I don't have that home culture to look to. I mean, I have family, but no instant bond with people based on my 'make up'. Some cultures and ethnicities just embrace like people and I find that interesting, endearing. I find it sad that it is something I will likely never ever know.
So, I'm a mutt. No one homeland outside of the good ol' USA to call my own. And even here, I find it's a chore to find those like me. The ones who get me and whom I get. Will this plague me forever? Realizing only when I'm too old that I could've done things differently? That maybe fitting in isn't the answer. The desire to be liked, even sought out for something that is uniquely mine. It's terrifying.
To belong somewhere.
