Promise me
You will not spend
so much time
treading water
and trying to keep your
head above the waves
that you forget,
truly forget,
how much you have
always loved to swim.
— Tyler Knott Gregson

Art for Appetizers – “Summer rain again”
“…. all progress must come from deep within and cannot be pressed or hurried by anything.  Everything is gestation and then bringing forth.  To let each impression and each germ of a feeling come to completion wholly in itself, in the dark…. and await with deep humility and patience the birth-hour of a new clarity:  that alone is living the artist’s life, in understanding as in creating.”
   — Rainer Maria Rilke
