Generously does it

There is a constant struggle [for the committed person] to live as an effective giver and receiver of gifts. There are millions of people around us whose lives are defined by generosity and service. Personal being [Emmanuel] Mournier continues, is essentially generous. But our society does not teach us how to be an effective giver of gifts. The schools don’t emphasise it. The popular culture is confused about it.*
(David Brooks)

Art is what we call it when we’re able to create something new that changes someone.**
(Seth Godin)

What better reason could there be for continually searching for ways and means to improve and develop ourselves than to become more generous?

Then Godspeed as you enter your art.
