Solace for the Fretful Artist

Words to lift sagging spirits (no foundation garment can accomplish so much)  and remind us why we do what we do:

‘There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through  you into action, and because there is only one of you in all 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 it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it  yours clearly and directly-- to keep the channel open.”
