(or Fun Facts 101!)
A little story:
Once upon a time a little hippie lady who attended sit-ins and a man who attempted to play a guitar because he idealized Bob Dylan exchanged a friendly conversation after chanting together at an ashram. They went out for a year or two and TADA my parents were born. Because of these two crazy kids I am a yoga going, gluten-free eating, Trader Joes shopping artist. Yes! A true stereotype…
Quotes that have given me a little pick me up every now and then:
“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it, even if I may not have it at the beginning.” – Mahatma Gandhi
“The artist never entirely knows-we guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.” – Agnes de Mille
“Go and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here. Make. Good. Art.” – Neil Gaiman
“Some people feel the rain, others just get wet.” – Bob Marley
