When do projects take a life of their own? The size of the project may have something to do with it, but it has more to do with how personal it is to you. When it means more than words to you. My mother became a doctor, so she could heal her father. She diagnosed him with Parkinson’s disease and couldn’t heal him. She none the less became a doctor.
I do know what my passion is. I know how engage it mechanically and do it, but when does it become art. How do I channel my creativity and expression, to key taps and letters, to become words and images? Simple and hard, but one of them I know. I’ll put myself to work and with repetition, practice, patience, and perseverance the habit will form, and I will be better at it than before.
