The truth is I feel incredibly stifled. I'm tired of creating content for the Like. Honestly, fuck the Like.
I need to create and write and take pictures
and make theater for myself and what brings me joy.
I already have this horrible, innate desire to please please please... to look after others' needs before my own.
I'm "my-aim-is-to-please" Kaitlin far too often.
On top of that, with platforms like FB & IG, I'm a bit brainwashed, no? to generate and publish content that I know will get a Like.
like me, please like me...
Then, the number of Likes is never enough.
I always want more.
A vicious ego trap.
It's a lot like money.
I'm out of the algorithm. I'm producing content for myself. I'm redefining my voice. I'm owning my content.
I still care about what you think, people.
I care so much about what you think.
I care about you and your perceived realities because I have so much to learn from how you experience the world. We have so much to learn from each other.
Let's start a hearty, skilled conversation in a realm far, far beyond like vs. dislike. Let's try to express the crazy, complicated simultaneity of emotions and feelings we experience daily. Let's try capture in words the essence of what it's like to be human, to have passions and fears, deep joys that are connected to deep sadnesses...
Let's really risk something here, people. I'm ready.

This is where I share notes and thoughts from the creative field. After clowning and performing in a lot of different places and countries, and doing so much internal work, processing and learning, I'm ready to talk about it.
