You might be wondering about the blank piece of paper above.
Well let me share with you an experience I had when applying to a major art college at the beginning of my career as an artist.
After lots of preparation and determining which College I thought would be right for me…………I applied and was……. rejected.
Since I believed I should be there I called the Principle of the College and he agreed to see me.
I remember walking into his large office and upon being seated, I placed a blank piece of paper right in front of him.
He said “what is this”?
I replied with great emotion….”That is me. A blank piece of paper with all the potential in the world………to have anything on it even a masterpiece. But I need this college to help me do that”.
Without another word he picked up his phone and called his deputy and said “give Robert an interview”.
What happened next I will save for another time.
So a blank piece of paper has always had a lot of meaning for me.
ALL of our potentials
ALL of our hopes and dreams.
May we all fulfill our highest and best in life and make something of that blank piece of paper we all have been given.
