I see now that I am an artist
It is not what I do to make a living
But it is the thing that gives me life

I see that I take my inspiration from
Everyday things

I follow no formula – at least one
not yet revealed

I breathe in…life
I breathe out…art

My job
My job as an artist is to write
It is the thing I must do

for the doing of it allows
Spirit to flow through

For the not doing of it
cuts me off from the inside
From the other side

It is my job to find the time
To create each and every day

It is my job to create the space
to allow the divine to flow through
