In this beautifully written and insightful guest blog, Brooklyn alternative/electro-rock powerhouse Kai Altair delves into the importance of dreams, surrounding yourself with the right people, and how artists can help make the entire human experience a little better for everyone. Enjoy!
Artists, musicians, dancers, and dreamers all live in a different place from time to time. We skitter around at the edges of things, pushing up against boundaries of real and unreal, seen and unseen. We perceive subtle shifts in energies and frequency, and often experience emotion and relationships via dizzying highs and lows. At our best we are romantic champions of imagination, heroes and wayshowers. At our worst we are lost and wandering, forever falling down in overwhelming patterns of stimulus and sorrow. Most of us are a little bit of both. Art is at its best when it pushes us to become something bigger and brighter, when it acts as a catalyst that sparks new paradigms that transform culture and the world. How do we move from dreaming into doing, and serve our purpose as translators of the human experience?
