I wanted to thank everyone who supported me over the past year in my effort to write this blog.
This has been my first experience writing in a public circle and it has taught me a lot. The main thing I have learned is that if you want to share your art- whether it be in words, creations or deeds- you need to just open your heart and let it go. Don’t be an artist expecting acknowledgement, approval or applause. Do it as an act of generosity with the intention of benefitting others, giving them strength or brightening their day. In generosity there is no failure, no inadequacy, no mistake. It is when we hold back, when we turn away or avert our eyes that ourselves and others experience states of loss. So in 2013 I can only encourage you to be fully present, find your ground, keep your eyes wide open, open your heart and share your gifts with the world.
Thank you for your encouragement, inspiration and support.
