What I learned today, from a fellow blogger:

"All artists are self-taught"

"Techniques and skill and even a point of view are often handed down, formally or not. It's easier to get started if you're taught, of course.

But art, the new, the ability to connect the dots and to make an impact--sooner or later, that can only come from one who creates, not from a teacher and not from a book." --Seth Godin

Perhaps the whole point of the exercise was to stress this simple point:


Furthermore, as a final thought:

Life begins at the end of our comfort zone - Neale Donald Walsch
