Don’t make stuff because you want to make money — it will never make you enough money. And don’t make stuff because you want to get famous — because you will never feel famous enough. Make gifts for people — and work hard on making those gifts in the hope that those people will notice and like the gifts.

A worthy goal for my summer is to create and share some of my work. I’m an Austin Kleon fan (he wrote “Keep Going” and Steal Like an Artist”), and the quote at the top of this entry, came to me one day through Austin’s newsletter. I do believe that one of the braver things we can do with our art, our talents and our work in general is to show up and to share. And make our contributions as carefully and mindfully as we would a gift to a friend. Not sharing to gain followers, get “likes”, or “build an audience”. Just sharing with the universe to see what happens. So this site is open for sharing as of today.
