It was all so good! Balance arrived. My techniques became reliable. My outcomes gorgeous, at least to my happy eyes. Pretty soon, I figured out a way to make some money to support my habit.
Remember these words of Maya Angelou: "Not everything you do is going to be a masterpiece, but you get art there and you try and sometimes it really happens. The other times you're just stretching your soul."
