Me, daring to create.  

“Art is about taking risks. Danger and chaos - those are the real muses an artist must court.”

~Robert Rauschenberg

It’s so easy to play it safe. Take the easy way out. Wait until the time is right. Wait until we are ready. Postpone a project until we are more prepared.

Ah… wait a minute!

Wait until I am ready? What!

I don’t know about you, but anytime I wait until I am ready, I never attempt anything. I never get anything done.

I am never ready. I am never as prepared as I want to be.

Can you relate? {Smile}

START before you are ready. (And learn as you go).

Don’t prepare. BEGIN.

Learn courage.

Dare to create.
