you can do it, too you begin whatever it is you are inspired to undertake, remember that, as a child, your first step, your first meaningful word, your first recognizable doodle all required untiring practice and immense patience until...voila! Success! And this will, too. No one expects you to run a marathon or paint a masterpiece or sing an aria in the beginning. Nor should you compare yourself with the master whose work you so admire.

When you write or draw, keep an eraser and plenty of clean white paper close at hand. If you are learning to dance, expect to stumble. When you sing, try for the high notes, too.  

Do not be discouraged because others have already discovered their voice, taken to the stage, or completed a manuscript. Their success is proof that you can do it, too.

What is it that you wish to prove?    

"Artists who seek perfection in everything are those
who cannot attain it in anything."
                                                 Eugene Delacroix


My bags are packed for a relaxing week at the shore. My next post will appear when I return. God only knows what the sunshine, sand and salt water will inspire.
