Keep going, keep growing

Old men [and women] ought to be explorers.*
T. S. Eliot

Make interesting amazing, glorious mistakes. Leave the world more interesting for your being here. Make good art.**
Neil Gaiman

Here are some “explorer clothes,”
Timeless classics^
as supplied by Anna Katharina Schaffner:^^
Self-knowledge for mastery and realism;
Choose your thoughts, rather than the other way around;
Let go of the False Self;
Do good and put others first;
Be humble to learn and grow;
Simplify to be able to focus on what’s important;
Free your imagination to wander freely;
Keep going;
Put yourself in other’s lives;
Always practise being present.

Plenty to keep us going.

**Neil Gaiman’s Art Matters;
^These practices have been utilised through hundreds, if not thousands, of years;
