Several years after my husband died in 2003, I decided to take some classes at the local community college for enrichment. One of them was a printmaking class. Until then I had not practiced much drawing beyond kindergarten. My kindergarten teacher had worried about my immature scribbles. I let this teacher discourage me for most of my life.
I came across this quote by Arthur Ashe:
“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”
