You can’t concentrate on doing anything if you are thinking, “What’s gonna happen if it doesn’t go right?”

If you don’t try… You’ll never know. If you never fail… You’ll never learn. Art is kinda like learning to walk; you put one foot in front of the other and keep going.

Do not wait; the time will never be ‘just right.’ Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.
~ George Herbert (poet) source

Alone on the Road

Often I think about the tools… New software, new computer, new camera, bigger lens, but life has finally taught this, Do not wait; start where you are.

A Link to How Art Changed Lives

Yesterday I found a blog out of Australia, ABC—Arts and by googling art changes lives. Within the blog, I found with people telling their story how art changed their lives. I hope you find a path where you will discover how art can enrich yours.

If you want to share your story, you may do it here. I would consider it a privilege to host your story on my blog.
