“Read, read, read. Read everything — trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it.
Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.”
― William Faulkner
Art – Reading by Lamplight – George Clausen (1852–1944)
“Do you know that every perfect life would mean the end of art?”
– Robert Musil – author of The Man Without Qualities.
I have started my poems out of an imperfect heart. I started my business out of an imperfect life wanting to do more—for me and for others.
Every person enters your life fighting the same conundrum. Your art can touch their souls and perfect some angles. Your magic might cast some threads in the community and create a better life.
Art – John Singer Sargent
