Make Believe by Sabrina Ward Harrison
This is what you shall do: love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy….argue not concerning god, have patience and indulgence toward the people….go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families….dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every moment (motion) and joint of your body…. Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass -

On Track: this is how i know...how i fumble and stumble upon the treasures of my adventurous life. I opened my e-mail to find Sabrina Ward Harrison's newsletter with the above quote. and what's this? MAKE BELIEVE? a book based on the above quote from Walt Whitman full of random and delicious photos and doodles? and here i thought i was so original naming my art show MAKE . BELIEVE! instead of feeling like a fraud, i am grinning right now like the Cheshire Cat...this is how i know...i'm On Track...my thoughts run in the same vein as someone i admire and am inpsired by. This is how i know i am on track.
