Thought for the Day

Artist-Typography

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!

    I’d forgotten about that book! Sadly it stayed in Indonesia, hopefully it is being looked after by another that appreciates RWE as much as we do
