Let the beauty of what you love be what you do. -Rumi
I read a quick Washington Post article someone posted on fb this morning. (I really need to delete that app but for some reason I haven’t yet. Is it FOMO? I guess so. But really, who the f* cares?!?!?!) Back to Rumi and the Post article. It said that telling people to “find their passion” could be detrimental, they might give up early or blah, blah, blah. But yet I find truth resounding in this article. I’ve been at a stand-still in my pottery career due to the many variables of life. I’ve been lost. And I suppose that’s what the article was saying, broaden your views to more than a singular “passion”. I need widen the creative road I am on. There are many things that I can cultivate into a thing of beauty or wonder or meaning. And I hold true to my belief that we need more love and beauty all around us.
*Notes: The article did not actually use the words “detrimental” (or “blah, blah, blah” for that matter), that’s simply the way my brain internalized the information. Photo taken at Hanging Rock State Park. I added the text via WordSwag. xo -d:)
