Truly one of my favorite signs, especially at a photography exhibit.
As I take a moment from fighting the New Dumb, I felt it necessary to spit out a few things:
1) Life without art is simply not worth it. The joy of creation and sharing one's view is unparalleled in both its simplicity and complexity. I enjoy it every single day. The day that I don't is one that I never want to face.
2) It is what you make of it. It can be whatever YOU choose, be it photography, sculpture, painting, music, cooking, quilting, writing, or simply being you. Is it the destination or the trip itself ?
3) As long as you have one person that likes what you do, you are successful. I have been fortunate in this life to have a supporter that will never have an equal. Every day I am thankful for this. I can only hope that you are as lucky as I am.
Don't let the bastards win.
