I’m blogging today about a dear friend who is doing a brave and delightful thing: listening to his muse and making wonderful art!
For years, he also was a weekend painter in between being a devoted parent…but one day, he saw an opportunity to take that leap of faith that these days it seems few really trust themselves well enough to do.
Painting by Michael F. Rumsby
[P.S. He doesn’t know I’m writing about him so I hope he won’t mind my gushing a bit about him and his work because on top of everything else he’s quite a modest guy.]
The moral to this story is that it’s ok to take risks, particularly when you’ve been thoughtful, realistic and absolutely convinced that you must do it. Because those are risks worth taking. While you can’t guarantee success, you can guarantee that you’ll be miserable if you don’t try.
