I found this quote on a Starbuck's cup a couple of weeks ago. I think it's fantastic.
"The irony of commitment is that it’s deeply liberating — in work, in play, in love. The act frees you from the tyranny of your internal critic, from the fear that likes to dress itself up and parade around as rational hesitation. To commit is to remove your head as the barrier to your life." – Anne Morriss
In fact, it keeps coming back to me as I encounter various people and situations.
This is a pretty good description about how I felt about my Lent project. Once I made the commitment to finish a small art quilt each day, I was free to actually embrace the doing of it.
I wish you could come over and we could sit on my red couch, have a cuppa and chat about it.
I've been thinking more about the completed Lent project and what I learned from it both spiritually and artistically. Several thoughtful friends have suggested I should exhibit the work. I'm beginning to put some ideas together.
