VSC – Beginners Mind

Posted on January 23rd, 2014

It’s so cold (-20) my ink won’t flow. I made multiple plates of sea creatures today. I had the funny feeling I was starting all over and knew nothing. Beginner’s mind, I’ve heard it called. But this was not a pleasant feeling. As an artist I am used to experimenting, but there are so many variables in this piece I can’t test them all.

A good friend sent me this prayer:

I pray that I may await with complete faith
for the next good thing in store for me.
I pray that I may always keep
an expectant attitude toward life.
