Magnificent Obsession

Day 116…

Finished the puzzle… Late Saturday…and all day Sunday I did art!!! Just like I imagined!!! I didn’t get out of my pajamas until 3:30 when my brother called and suggested an early supper. 

 Yes…he’s the fulltime musician…writes songs, plays blues guitar, is always creating.  The perfect person for me to check in with.  And yes, he understood my obsession.  Ah, affirmation from one who knows…

It is surely a great calamity for a human being to have no obsessions.
Robert Bly
The refusal to rest content, the willingness to risk excess on behalf of one’s obsessions, is what distinguishes artists from entertainers, and what makes some artists adventurers on behalf of us all.
John Updike
