My list of rules:

  1. Don’t care so much.
  2. But care enough.
  3. Care tremendously. About your art and about yourself and about everyone surrounding you.
  4. Never strive for perfection.
  5. Strive for disaster on occasion.
  6. It’s the only way to learn.
  7. Work hard when you can and when you can’t, that’s okay too.
  8. Sometimes you have to give up and start again.
  9. And again.
  10. And again.
  11. Sometimes you will fall to pieces.
  12. Do not be afraid to put yourself back together for fear of what you will look like.
  13. Do not fear death.
  14. Embrace the concept of a beating heart.
  15. Be painfully dumb and unpredictable at all times.
  16. Love without limits or conditions.
  17. Just love.
  18. Always be kind to cats.

I dedicate these Rules to a long lost friend, here on the one year anniversary of her death.

Remember to always live. Don’t ever forget you are alive and capable of anything.
