Artists' dilemma

The artists' dilemma is that they may find themselves forging ahead into an often indifferent world to offer what they have to share. To continue to move ahead with conviction demands courage and a degree of persistence and confidence in the worth of their gift. Sometimes we have to reassure ourselves that we and those gifts really have value. Perhaps we may more authentically see ourselves as couriers of what has been given us to give away.
