While we were taking the 1.5 mile hike through Sunset Point in Bryce, my daughter, Dana, said she couldn't help but think of this quote:
If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them. Henry David Thoreau
This reminds me of my experience at the Art Festival last month. There were many artists who had so much artwork consuming display walls and racks that I felt overwelmed by the sheer quantity of good quality work for sale. Comparing myself to them put the fear in my boots. So, my new practice is to stop feeding the monster inside my head. Ignore its raging ramblings and fill my head with quotes like the one above.
I don't know what my castle will look like in the end, as you, but let's just show up together with mortar and brick, holding hands, doing the our creative best so that some day we'll stand back, look up and admire together those beautiful castles in the sky.
