Dear You

Today was a good writing day for the book. There’s a letter I want to include. I am undecided as there are many edits to go.

Dear You,

You are much more than you give yourself credit for. Get started on a project. You have an idea and questions. Answer them as you go. The importance is you keep making art. Stop every now and then for quiet reflection time. Realize that in every project you will have many questionable pieces. Maybe ugly ones.  Why? Forget about the self-help that tells you are a work in progress.  You are a beautiful life force connected to the bigger force.  You are loved. Keep going and observe. In the end you will be closer to your best work. Not everything you make will make it in the shop. Everything you make comes with a valuable lesson.  That’s where the growth is. Let your voice be heard. Some may not like what you have to say and that’s ok. Know that there are artists who are ready to pass down their motivational wisdoms. Some of which are mentioned in the book.
