an artful life

It is difficult to commit to living where we are, how we are. It is difficult and it is necessary. In order to make art, we must first make an artful life, a life rich enough and diverse enough to give us fuel. We must strive to see the beauty in where we are planted, even if we are planted somwehere that feels very foreign to our own nature.

-from The Sound of Paper, by Julia Cameron
