Just waiting...

“You will face your greatest opposition when you are closest to your biggest miracle.” 
― Shannon L. Alder

...And while I contemplate this quote I draw...

and draw...

 and draw...

and BTW
I'm working on the scarf you asked me to make for you.
You're going to wear it
till 120!

Lemonade out of lemons...

"Life handed him a lemon,
As Life sometimes will do.
His friends looked on in pity,
Assuming he was through.
They came upon him later,
Reclining in the shade
In calm contentment, drinking
A glass of lemonade."

G-d knows we all get our share of lemons.

If everything was sweet 

What challenges would we have?

Where would our self esteem come from?
There is no greater feeling than 'I did it myself".
The harder the challenge 
the greater the feeling of accomplishment.
One of the ways I train myself is through art.
When I start a project I usually have no idea where I'm going with it.
Most of the time I'm satisfied with the results.
Not ecstatic but satisfied.
But I never give up on it.
Even when I think It's a wash
I try to make it work.
This last one took many hours.
At the end I wasn't crazy about it.
So I cut it into squares and VOILA!
A piece of unexpected art.
I particularly love the way the frame slowly 'appeared'.
Now I love this piece.

Bottom line is YOU GOTTA MAKE IT WORK!
