"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." --Mark Twain

"Welcome to France. Just as the Allied troops saw it."
"Abbey at Caen"
Mark your calendar for a weekly "artist date." Set a specific time, e.g. 3 p.m. - 4 p.m., to write, sketch, paint, or draw. Plan to reward yourself with something silly--a berry smoothie, gold sticker stars, or cup of Cappuccino at Starbucks.
"Wherever you go, go with all your heart."- -Confucius
Now go write something. I dare you.
See you in print,

P.S. Thank you, JB, wherever you are.
