From Seth Godin this morning:

Brian Eno possibly said that, "the first Velvet Underground record may have only sold 1,000 copies, but every person who bought it started a band." 

Art doesn't have to be popular or well received to make an impact.  Be your true self, do your art and don't worry about what others say or think.

Zen Presence - Ideas for Meaningful Living


  1. Thanks-I needed to hear that.I started painting a few weeks ago and was told by my mother that my painting looked "like a five year old did it"(I am 52)...Her remarks stung, but I painted another one anyway.It was fun and relaxing, and I will continue to do it for me-even if no one else cares for my art...

  2. Thanks, that made me smile. :-) Makes me feel better about my little corner of the Internet.
