You can't let yourself be scared by a blank sheet of drawing paper or a white canvas.
But what you put on that paper or canvas must come from your deepest self.
Your attitude of openness toward this place in yourself can be like the thick layer of leaves on the forest floor, in that it is always there, no matter what goes on above.
This path and the seed of your own work are within each one of you.

- that is pain, anguish.
Meet it with bravery and with great love." Lenore Tawney
