The Work that it takes
There is this interesting contradiction that I am forever encountering. Meeting someone for the first time they are quick to say about themselves “I have no talent, I wish I could paint, sing, draw etc.” As I listen I realize that some people think an artist just gets up in the AM and goes and does his/her thing and that it’s easy. A post on the “Making a Mark” blog “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!” sums up some of the commitment that it takes. Being Creative is a mindful endeavor that takes time, constant effort and understanding by friends and family.
