Last week at Brooklyn Quaker Meeting for Worship, Todd Drake shared this beautiful message, which I am sharing with his permission:
As an artist, I have often thought of making art as like fishing. It’s like you are throwing out bait and hoping that it catches something. That might mean a sale or some kind of exposure to your work.
Now I am thinking of art as more like the boat I am sitting in. It’s the thing that all this time has been keeping me afloat.Todd Drake
