Well, I really lost my train of thought there, didn't I?
And, now the art quote isn't even THERE any more. To paraphrase, it said that art must first be gentle and then honest.
Well, for me, gentleness with myself doesn't come naturally. I'm working on that! Honesty without gentleness, when dealing with changes that I need to make in my life......... well, that just turns into downright meanness. I prefer gentleness these days, thank you........... I've had quite enough of the other.
