Creativity. Inclusivity. Reality.

Imagine demanding that every song written from here on out meet the multi-cultural sonic desire of every human on earth. Absurd. Dare I say, tyrannically narcissistic? In claiming to include everyone we'd no doubt exclude nearly everyone. This Utopian dream cannot happen this side of Heaven.


The modern narrow idea of inclusivity is not only unrealistic, it's unhelpful.


What you're creating right now will not be accepted by all. It will not be liked by all. Not everyone will agree with its quality, value, message or style. And they shouldn't. They can't.


You and I can't either.


You and I have boundaries we don't want to cross and will not agree with those who cross them. Just as not everyone agrees on the perfect color, city, movie or meal, the masses will not agree with you on every detail of your creativity, mission or method.


But there is a tribe eager to experience what you bring to the table. I'm convinced that God wired us this way, to be unique creations taking part in larger communities of unique creatures. And these communities ebb and flow.


Sure, everyone might very well be welcome to the show. But you and I both know that not everyone should be grafted into your creative studio space, shaping your creative habits and curating your creative thoughts and message.


Go be who you're designed to be, Boo.
