Believe in your creative vision
My most favorite quote, by Martha Graham, keeps me going and inspires me to share my art and message even in times of doubt. As artists it’s normal to have doubts, blocks, and fears that get in our way. But it is important that we continue to share our vision and express what comes through us.
In this world we are the ones who imagine and see. So what we create helps deliver those visions and messages.
May our creations serve to uplift each other and be a positive force in the world.
This is my favorite quote:
“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost.
It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how valuable, nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours, clearly and directly to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.” -Martha Graham
