Until recently, I've never been the type to sit calmly and observe a situation with an open mind and a closed mouth.
For the majority of my life, I've been quite the opposite of a calm observer. In fact, I've been little more than an erratic, hyperactive mess of a person.
It's difficult for me to be still, mentally or physically, which isn't always a good thing for one who seeks to be a FOCUSED artist.
But I believe discipline coupled with an internal "push", can forge the perfect stoic wanderer. And maybe, in time, a talented artist.
