I’m attempting an original metaphor. Wish me luck…
Picture yourself at a beach. You stand near the ocean, looking out. Tide rolls in. Tide rolls out. That ocean is the universe.
When the tide rolls out, bend down and quickly dig a hole in the wet sand. That hole is your life.
There are tons of different seashells nearby. They come in all shapes, colors and sizes. Those seashells are your art.
You have two options before the tide rolls back in.
ONE. Gather a bunch of seashells and fill up the hole with your choices. Your art.
TWO. Do nothing. Let the ocean fill it up for you.
