A few years ago a friend, wrote a post on his blog about his writing and how, for him, there was no drama or anxiety when he sat down. Writing is clearly natural for him, and, unlike many people he  worries not about being good, just about keeping going.

I’ve had a few of those moments this week when I’ve been painting, and I’m so glad I’d read that post because when it happened, I was able to see them for what they were.

It also became one of those moments when you realize that sharing your art or your work is the opposite of selfishness or self-centeredness because you never know how or when it will change someone.
