May be given
A natural talent,
But a devotion to the art
Is required to develop major skill.
It might take many years to gain
Work of great worth

I am grateful:
1. Mom let me sleep in.
2. I have a pair of glasses, even though I do not like them.
3. I felt a little better after I ate this evening.
4. I went to the class tonight despite my not feeling like going out.
5. The class liked my picture of the female mallard.
I hope you had a productive Thursday. Today was not the best day for me. I did not feel well. However, I devoted some time to working creatively, and you should too. You have nothing to lose and much to gain by engaging your imagination.
