“With regard to making a living through ones artistic creativity, it’s similar to figuratively planting seeds over long periods of time, and distance. You never look back, you stay in motion, and continue to plant, while you thrive on the process itself, and flourish in faith.” – Pat Martino
I have felt this way for my entire life but I could never explain it. There is a strong element of faith involved.
