Without the Gargoyles

In A Beautiful Anarchy, Creativity and Inspiration, The Life Creative by David3 Comments

In the Middle Ages, churches placed gargoyles on their roofs to remind parishioners of the dangers that awaited them without the church, both then and into eternity. Literally hanging over their heads, the gargoyles kept the faithful, well, faithful, and warded off evil spirits. Most creatives I know, if not most human beings, have voices and negative people in their lives that try to do the same. I say it’s time we chiseled them off. We live, and love, and create better when we stop listening to the negative voices that hang over our heads. Let’s talk about it.

I’ve decided to begin posting my weekly podcast here to my blog, as well as the other platforms, just to make it easy to get to everything I make in one place. You can still get it at aBeautifulAnarchy.com or on iTunes, Spotify, and the usual other suspects.

You can also download the mp3 file here and you can read the transcript here.

One of the reasons I am doing this is there is no way to leave comments through the other platforms, but you can do so here. In the coming months I’ll be less and less on social media. It might be a permanent move away from the world of Facebook and Instagram, it might not, but I want to be sure I remain available and that our conversations continue.

Want to be told when new episodes are live and ready for you? I’ll send you a very brief email to let you know it’s there. I’ll also send you every issue of On The Make, which comes out every 4 weeks when the podcast isn’t airing. Just click here and let me know where to send it.


  1. Soy un aficionado español que estoy interesado por recibir tus trabajos. Me gustan mucho, razón para ser felicitado.

  3. I have been working hard to vanquish my personal gargoyles. I’ve been reaching out to more people to collaborate and accepting the rejection and looking forward to the next yes. I’ve shared images and edits that I would normally keep private.
