Tea for thought – Serendipity

“It's a bizarre but wonderful feeling, to arrive dead center of a target you didn't even know you were aiming for.”  ― Lois McMaster Bujold

Often the end result in a piece of art (with it’s given creative process that takes dead ends and many turns in different directions to get where it needed to be) is a fortunate accident. A definite pleasant surprise.  I need to remember this when I experience fear and doubt as an artist. It’s the mistakes we make along the way that gives such satisfaction to the journey. Do you also feel the fear that hinders one from leaping into the creative process, regardless of the unknown outcome?
