I’ve been facing a bit of a digital learning curve this week and thought playing around with this quote would do me some good. The funny thing is – once I finished it I referenced back to where I’d found it – and realized I’ve quoted it wrong. It’s actually “Every artist was FIRST an amateur” – Ralph Waldo Emerson. My good friend Nicole actually has a book of his essays which I happened upon one early morning a lifetime ago while visiting her in Indonesia. It made for a peaceful morning in a strange place, drinking instant coffee from filtered water and paging through a pretty beaten book.
I’ve got some stuff in the works and look forward to the opportunity to share it with you all – hopefully in the near future. In the meantime – to anyone struggling with a creative endeavour of any sort – we were all beginners once. I’m no different from the rest and still have a lot to learn. Make mistakes! Make them better! And happy Wednesday!
