"Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly."
G K Chesterton

Here's to going lightly through the day and seeing where the wind will carry us...

every child is an artist

Been thinking about how young children paint. And how they so naturally do what as a grown up it's so desparately hard to do. I love what Picasso said, "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up."

So cool. And yet another reason to become like a child...

Here's another great quote:

“Unlike in music, there are no child prodigies in painting. What people regard as premature genius is the genius of childhood. It gradually disappears as they get older. It is possible for such a child to become a real painter one day, perhaps even a great painter. But he would have to start right from the beginning. So far as I am concerned, I did not have that genius. My first drawings could never have been shown at an exhibition of children’s drawings. I lacked the clumsiness of a child, his naivety. I made academic drawings at the age of seven, the minute precision of which frightened me.” Picasso (1881-1973)
