sometimes we need a reminder

This is for makers. It’s a reminder.
It’s something we all know.
But sometimes we forget.

The thing that makes an artist an artist
is the act of making art.

It’s not past art, and how great it was.
Or future art, and how great it will be.
It’s in progress art, and what you’re making,
now.

The thing that makes an artist an artist
isn’t the awards or accolades
(rightly deserved or not)
it’s the act of making art.

Part of us knows this.
But sometimes we need a reminder.

The act of making art, makes us an artist.

a week of leaving a trail of sparkles in my wake
a brief moment of touching base
Why do you need that many knitting needles?
