Does this look like an artist to you?
How about this?
Now, please don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying today’s art is going to the dogs. I’m just saying today’s dogs are going to the art.
Some may go reluctantly, unsure, not knowing what to do, as some artists go to a blank canvas…
While others run full speed ahead, unafraid, safe in an unsafe world, confident.
Yet with support and gentle hands to guide them, even ‘reluctants’ will take a step forward, and then another, and maybe another if the unsafe world is growing safer.
And when he looks back at his achievement, however small, he smiles. Not because the painting is so great, but because he took that first step. And then another.
Now I’m not saying humans are any different than dogs. I’m just saying you can teach an old dog new tricks.
Which first step are you willing to take? Which first step are you willing to smile for?
For which first step are you willing to pin up your ears and begin? Then do it! Today.
