I have never been very competitive. My gypsy childhood ment we were never anywhere long enough for me to join in group sports, and I have always favored 'alone' activities anyways. I feel ackward when playing games with more than 4 people, but love the challange of doing my own personal best. A favorite teacher of mine in 5th grade in Switzerland, always had this saying on the tip of her tongue:
Good, Better, Best,
Never let it rest,
Until your Good is your Better,
and your Better is your Best!
I try to take this to heart when I live my life and create art. I don't like or need to compete with others, only myself. My art has become my favorite sport, one that I try daily to excell in. Like any athelete I have good days and bad days, the trick, I find, is to keep at it, and do the best I can. Come play with me...
