Journal 2-7-20130001



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
Mastery producing
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.

As a prompt, write about how commitment effects skill. You see this relationship more clearly in the arts than in some other areas of life, but write about whatever comes to you. If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you will come back frequently. You may wish to receive future updates by email, if so please subscribe to Chronicles. If you have thoughts, suggestions, or criticism, please leave a comment.

    Good for you JoAnn! The kids and I went out way too late last night and some of us felt the same way today but we still went to class, went to work, made supper etc. I found time to make a little movie and discovered again how much I love making movies. Being creative is somehow cathartic for me…like a relaxation rather than a burden. Hope you have a good night’s sleep and feel better tomorrow. 🙂

      Thank you Veronica. Sounds like you had a full day. I am glad you are exploring movie making again. Creative pursuits enrich our lives so much.
