Mary Engelbreit calendars always have a way of brightening up your desk space. Today's calendar page made me chuckle ... can you see the quote? It says,
"Creative minds have always been known to survive any kind of bad training." Anna Freud
Look at the scrunched-up face of the teacher as she eyes the out-of-the-box artist in the front row ... it just cracked me up. My classes were all business classes ... so that's not terribly creative from the get-go.
I did take a pottery class during Jan-term in college. Luckily, though, the fabulous professor had a much more relaxed face and never-ending patience for us 'trying-to-explore-our-creative-side' business (and other non-art related major) types.
Oh, did I create a lot of heavy-bottomed vessels in that class! My dear, sweet family proudly endured, no ... I mean, displayed them on their desks after I distributed them as gifts. So kind of them ... those pieces of 'art' did a fine job holding pencils and pens for many years.
Wishing you a successful day of creative writing, despite any bad training (or scrunchy-faced teachers) you've endured along the way!
