A little note for 2013...
I spent the afternoon reading and writing... trying to clearly define my true passion and goals for this year. Still a work in progress, but that's what it's always about isn't it? It's always a work in progress and that is a step or two in the right direction.
I have to make decisions that will change my path again, but I have to believe that everything is perfect and happening exactly the way it should be. I sound like you Darl..;)
A very good friend of mine sent me what he called " a little note for new year's from me." It inspired me a great deal and I would like to share it with you.
" There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it.
It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the Channel open...
No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than others."
- Martha Graham, 1943
I hope you find it as inspiring as I do.
