Show up...


"I don't wait for inspiration. If you wait for the clouds to part and to be struck in the head with a bolt of lightening, you're likely to be waiting the rest of your life. But if you simply get going, something will occur to you."

"Inspiration is for amateurs, and the rest of us just show up and get to work."
--Chuck Close


When I stumbled upon this quote, it made me smile. It is something I have known for ages, but I love how he says it so simply.

I have even blogged about this (in a more roundabout way)... but I needed the reminder too. Hope you are well. Your sister & Gabe were at my art/stamp sale last sat. xo

We constantly need reminders and as you say Chuck says it so well.

Or like Adam Sandler (or was it Ben Stiller???) said in the Wedding Crasher..."just do it"! :)
