This quote caught my eye yesterday – I like the simplicity of the message. Whether or not we consider ourselves artists, or aspire to be artists, there is always a starting place for undertakings that require a leap into something new.
One reason I love living and working in Brooklyn is that we’re surrounded by people who are doing very cool things – personal projects that inspire them and fill them up – on the side of day jobs. These projects often require some risk, and persistence, and a desire to learn. These people were amateurs in the beginning, in pursuit of something that makes them tick. This energy is contagious!
