Understanding “The Process”

Bets,

I’ve spent so much of my life looking for my spot. I read obsessively, studied constantly, and sought my fixed place & purpose.

I’ve written and couldn’t find my great american novel: shot thousands of photos, and never came near National Geographic.
My ten thumbs forbade any progress in musical instruments.

Somewhere in my 50’s I came to understand that my curiosity has made of me, no classic artist, but a culmination of all my travels and explorations. And, I am both content in being a continually evolving me and passing the essence of that to others...
