Abstraction: Letter to Erica

Erica, How have you been? I miss you a lot. I was thinking about you the other day, and you gave me an epiphany! I have been struggling with some of these concepts for so long- and the whole idea of you in my brain, made everything click. I was going to say, 'clarified things', but that's not true; It was more like, contentment with the haze of it. -It was your art technique: The abstractness. When I think of doing abstract art, I think of how much pressure of detail accuracy is removed from the project- and more potential to enjoy the transaction between the medium I'm using, and myself; But, I can rarely actually begin an abstract piece- and half of those times, my piece actually turns into something identifiable- something other than abstract. I realized then; Just like your abstract art technique, I am leading an abstract life course. I have been pressuring myself so hard to adhere to the same timeline as my peers, but my peers are not all composing their lifestyles in any similar manner as I am. I don't have to know what I'm doing every single step of the way. Abstraction implies that it's normal to not know, and that's where the pressure lies. The problem only comes when we stop.
