Some one once asked "Somerset Maugham" where he got his inspiration. His reply was the following, " I get my inspiration every morning between 9 am and 1 pm when I do my writing." Inspiration is a poor excuse for not working at your craft every day. A holiday for an artist is finding time to work on a creative project — the satisfaction is in the doing — the process itself is an environment of tranquillity and purpose. What the world thinks comes second. In many respects it’s like improvising music on the piano, you don’t know where it will lead, but it’s a most pleasing experience in the moment. To the artist within each of us!! Happy New Year!
