23 May 2013 Boxcar or Masterpiece?
Boxcars roll steadily in a column, bound front and back to others, with their graffiti facades, pulled and pushed by locomotives they never meet, along steel rails that take them to and from places they’ve rolled many times before. Ever feel like you are plodding endlessly along familiar tracks, pushed and pulled by forces you don’t understand, to places that no longer excite you?
Unlike the boxcar, the artist is free from tracks and limited only by imagination. Each one of us is the artist of our own masterpiece. No one is better qualified to envision, shape, pound out, and work a better future for ourselves than we are. We alone hold the power, the unique skills, the creativity, and the passion to become the masterpiece we were created to be.
