Words of wisdom from Neil Gaiman

Need some inspiration on a Monday? Try this:

Two of my favorite excerpts:

…”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.”

“The moment that you feel that, just possibly, you’re walking down the street naked, exposing too much of your heart and your mind and what exists on the inside, showing too much of yourself. That’s the moment you may be starting to get it right.”

Fun fact: I’ve always loved Neil Gaiman because he loves cats. Google “Neil Gaiman Cat” and enjoy the images 🙂
