I'M HERE TO EMPOWER YOU!

I’m an artist . . . but that’s not saying much, because I believe, and it is something that I have devoted my time heavily to convey, that art expression is an inherent property of human nature. The media may vary, but not the innate disposition.

Those that know me have heard my “talent-as-myth” diatribe all too often, and if you end up tuning in to my posts, you will encounter it soon enough. It is my goal to change the notion, which a great number of people resign to, that one needs to have “talent” to pursue the art they feel or want and am doing this on a daily basis through my program in the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.

With that as preface, I will probably devote a portion of my posts to inspiring artists, but I also plan to impart other conceptions that I have about life in general, with the goal of elevating, encouraging, enlivening or energizing those who read them.

Let me begin with this:

I wish for you the ability to create for yourself all that your heart desires.

Do you have a dream? What or who would you like to be in the next year, the next ten years? What do you need to extricate from your life to become that?
Are you willing to sacrifice who you are right this very minute?

The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice that which we are for what we could become. ~Charles DuBois

    One good thing (of many) about getting old: If you don't want to petrify, you get used to jumping off cliffs without a parachute.
