I received an email the other day from a person who didn't want to follow my blog because of some of my political posts. They're concerned that because they don't necessarily agree with some of my views, if others would see they subscribe, it automatically "means" they agree with my position.
I think this is unfortunate as I see the value of looking at various view points if not for anything else, to get a different perspective. As an artist, whether I write about political concerns or not, some of my art reflect my thoughts. I don't have to create art related to political subjects but as an artist, I feel compelled to do so. Art is an avenue to express societal and political concerns. And, thank goodness we continue to have this freedom of expression.
My thoughts on politics, etc., is only one part of who I am as a person. There are other facets in my interests. I hope that if you like some of the things you see on this blog, it compels you to want to see more and not rule out only one aspect of it for choosing not to subscribe.
Thank you for visiting here today.
