Sometimes your audience just doesn't pick up on the clever symbolism, the hints, the metaphor, the underlying themes and all the artistic cleverness in writing and art that you've filled your work up with! So what do you do when that happens? Do you call them philistines and rage-quit, do you double down and make your work even more confusingly impenetrable till they're FORCED to decipher your genius, do you accept the state of affairs and dumb things down to the lowest common denominator, or do you ignore it and keep doing what you're doing? Creators have chosen ALL of these options at various times. It can be quite frustrating when no one seems to pick up on your cleverness… But then when you've been creating long enough you don't care anymore and you're just glad anyone at all is still reading your stuff! XD What do you do when people don't get your stuff or you don't get someone elses? What symbolism is hidden in your work that no one seems to get? This week Gunwallace has given us the theme to The Frolic: Deep, multilayered, full, complex and interesting! This one leads us into the green dark forests, dry desert caves caves, and other hidden places, hinting at deeper truths within the depths beyond.
