"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours, clearly and directly, to keep the channel open." Martha Graham
I keep coming across this quote...first heard it at an art seminar. Then, months later, a friend wrote it on a birthday card she gave to me. Stumbled across it again in an art book last week. A good reminder for all artists, but especially in times of doubt, hesitation, or drought.
