Start by holding something. Pencil and paper will do. Feel the texture. Allow the tools to become part of you. Engage your body, move into creating something original with whatever you are holding at this present time. Many say art making is awkward at first. Others immediately turn themselves on. Notice the sensations, do not judge, and continue art making. Join me, as we begin again, with each fresh moment – make a thing or two of original, imperfect beauty.
“I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” Henry David Thoreau * Walden
