Easter Holidays (at last)

So I was excited for about five minutes last night, thinking oh the endless possibilities - an audience for my prolific creative output.  But then I woke up this morning and the thought of even one person reading, and viewing my pictures and prose didn't seem so attractive.

Is it every amateur writer/artists experience to wonder what use is any of it - before being published?  I can find the beautiful in the things I make but when I hold it up to some other professional work on the web It sometimes looks like a child has made it. 

I'll stay safe for now, and stick to photography (and the occassional funky postcard since I have millions of them,) and when I feel more adventurous, well, we'll see.

Maybe tomorrow a poem...................

  1. I think that you are too hard on yourself, Dave. I have loved every photo that you have placed up on 365 and this will be another fabulous creative outlet for you.

    Rest assured, your worries aren't unique to you - you just have to be one of the ones who basically says "This is me, like it or lump it" and stand proudly by your work. Some will love it. Some will not. The only one you have to honestly please is you - the rest of us are basically blessed to just be allowed to look in.
