I'm giving myself a gift this evening. I'm going to do just as I please. During the Christmas Season it's so easy to just push yourself until you're dead on your feet.
I have a note on my refrigerator. It says
It's going to stay there until I get it through my thick skull that the world does not depend on me for anything but being myself.
This evening's pleasure is to begin a painting in watercolor that I find intriguing. The original was done in oils by someone else. Someone who is a better artist than I am. I don't let that stop me. How am I to improve if I don't challenge myself?
Yes, to some this may seem like work. To me it is the most exquisite pleasure. Try it some day.
