Being like a child is what makes you such a good artist.....keep creating,

"The great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do."
-Walter Bagehot

"One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the
choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape
ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And, the choices we make
are ultimately our own responsibility."-----Eleanor Roosevelt

"Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are
dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do
it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many

-Michael Landon

We can't become what we need to be by remaining what we are.

long, which only made it more possible for more misunderstandings on the
person's part.
> The person sent me another personal email, telling me that he/she was
unsubscribing from puptcrit because of me and my taking it "public". What's
wrong with that, if I removed any clue of gender and name? The text was all
in red, which I interpret (perhaps falsely) as being un-related to
christmas, despite the "happy Hollidays" finish line.

deny that is what it is."

spoiled child."
> Well, I like sympathy, but this wasn't really about that. I just wanted
to understand, see what I had done wrong.

not in my plans.
