Pretentious??? No the wisdom of a Chinese Proverb

I've been thinking a lot about that last post I made last week where I boldly made the statement "I am an artist". I had been contemplating deleting the statement as it sounded grandious and pretentious and totally NOT me. Then I realised I needed to be true myself and be positive. So what that my creative endeavours are infrequent. Quantity has nothing to do with quality.

Time for some self actualisation. "Say it, live it, believe it, become it" etc.

It also made me reflect on an ancient chinese proverb that I had carved into stone chops. It reads:

Art is long. Life is short.

and so endth the lesson.
