We're coming up on one of my favorite times of the year: that time, just after spring breaks out but before summer begins, in which thousands of college graduates are released into the world. And as they go forth we give them lots of advice. The advice varies, sometimes conflicts, but the general idea is: Here is what you need to know in order to succeed in the world.

Ray Dodd

Even though I subscribe to the practice of being present-in-the-moment through mediation and Yoga, it's often more of an ideal than a practice. Every day I have a "to-do list," what I need to get done to keep everything moving, and in my mind, to keep everything from falling apart.

Who you are as an artist is not the sum total of the jobs you book, paintings you sell, books you publish, etc. The act of doing, the act of expressing, the act of celebrating who you are through your work -- which is really your art, and your life is your art -- are the reasons for doing it.
