One begins life and then gradually begins art.

In my case, it’s the opposite, and I feel like I started life after I did art. In general, the path from life to do art would be the norm.

Many people have lived abundant lives in the world. Also, one out of a hundred beliefs who lived that abundant life would have a desire to record their own life.

However, recording themselves is talented, skilled like any sport or skill, has a long training process. It is hard to enjoy your life if you practice it. Also, it is not possible to train record talent during the adventure. So, it’s usually late when people want to record their life and leave it as an exciting story in the world for posterity.

We do not start happy with life from the beginning. The ones who are content are very exceptional. This phenomenon would be the same for any successful social revolution.

Art begins there.
