the past should never deter, only inspire

Alex G Bell couldn’t have imagined what Martin Cooper would go on to do,
and he too had no idea to what extent Steve Jobs would stretch the technology

so you – the artist – shouldn’t have to compare yourself to a Shakespeare, or worry whether you can outdo a da Vinci,

rather try to figure out how you can improve on the foundation laid before you and create something new with the potential inside you

    Thanks for the great reminder that I am standing on the shoulders of Tennyson, Tolkien, Yeats, C.S.Lewis, Gabeldon…and host of other artists whose work inspires, teaches and motivates me in my own writing!
