Yes, there are some people who have more of a predisposition to make art, but there are people with a predisposition who like to study engineering or cells. All of us can take time to find out what we’re good at, but to practice takes passion. Passion allows you to reach for something else. To push yourself to uncharted territory. Not someone else’s territory, but your own. It’s your own journey, your own way to find out what you want to practice. Now I get to be on that journey, and you’re welcome to come with me.
