Well Its a Start at least
What is ?
Lost Creative is a narrative of my life. It actually a it more than that - but thats probably enough for now- I’ll spare you the detail. What does that mean - fuck knows!. What i do know though is that this blog has a long way to go - in every sense of the saying.
Where, exactly i dont know - i’ll be honest with you, here. But i do have the notion that it should be a good ride (- I’m not sure why though lol). I expect a bit dark, a bit strange, a bit funny, quirky and also I’m sure a bit boring at times (all i ask, is that you stick with it for as long as you can, before you go - and that you will want to come back some time).
Perhaps, some context is deserved. Lost Creative is a journey. In place, time, lives and minds (and combinations thereof). It is, in all modesty, an expedition of mammoth proportions. Dramatic? - I know.
Maybe content will get it going....
Part literature, part thought - crossroads, self discovery. All essential ingredients in any one person’s life, i think.
Thinking is by the way something i do an awful lot of. I have only really just realised this about myself - which in itself is a bit weird; i mean, i am approaching 40. Anyway, so i do a lot of thinking.
“Along the way, colours started becoming less bright; less glossy, you could say. I didn't notice at first. its like when you get a graze as a kid and it really stings at the start, and then it sort of fades into the background of everything else, like the bandaid, mercurochrome etc. So, no - i was distracted i guess. Perhaps lazy...who knows?
One day though. Quite a bit later. I realised something. I realised that it was a an issue for me. I realised that i didn't want the colours dim anymore. No!. I wanted things as bright as can be.
The only problem...I had no idea where the dimmer switch was. I knew i had to find it and so i started to search. Like when you are a kid. You’ve gone to the milk bar on your own for the first time. you counted your money for your self and at the counter you dont have enough, and you search every pocket.
Searched like that i did, but still i didn't find the switch. I did find a lot of crap though whilst i was searching....and that kind of set all this in motion. Without, there would have been no Lost Creative. Or at least - not this one.
But we can get to more of that later.
Today. This very day, I am enjoying a work free afternoon, all to myself. I hired a dvd on the weekend - A single gentlemen by Tom Ford. I tried to watch it for the second time today and only got as far as the last time, when i fell asleep, before i got distracted. I tunes on - Bob Dylan (new experience - not great) - he does warble a bit....i kind of want him to stop, but its melodic enough to kind of fool you into thinking it will get better. It doesn’t seem to though.
So - that’s where i start.
