Why do I make the things I do? Music, pictures, drawings, paintings.
I think it's because I don't know how to say some things. So I create something to get a feeling, thought or worry out of my system. Poetry is the easiest form, writing a poem in mere minutes is easy. Drawing and music take me the longest to do. And as such I do them less often, but more intense.
I guess it's simple, but it means a lot to me.
