“A freelance life, a life in the arts, is sometimes like putting messages in bottles, on a desert island, and hoping that someone will find one of your bottles and open it and read it, and put something in a bottle that will wash its way back to you: appreciation, or a commission, or money, or love. And you have to accept that you may put out a hundred things for every bottle that winds up coming back.” –
So here I am, putting those “hundred things” for a bottle I am so thankful to receive. It is a bottle that offered me something I want to do, something my heart is longing to do and something my heart is free to do.
I am getting used to this freelance life, and I think I am loving it. And isn’t that the point?
