A nugget to ponder from a rather lengthy post, initially introduced to me by my friend and former teacher, artist Sharon Lynn Williams. Mr. Seiler points out precisely the fine line I've been trying to tread between showing my work to others for their enjoyment, and wanting to be what our culture defines as "successful".
Lest you think Mr. Seiler's words revolutionary, here are a couple of earlier versions thereof:
- "Pride goeth before a fall." (Proverbs 16:18); and
- "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God." Jesus, quoted in Mark 10:25.
Nothing new under the sun....eh?
