Reach for your Dreams 

Window display. Brays Books, Balmain

To be paid a compliment is nice.
To be paid in coin is even nicer.
Because while a kind word affirms
How much your art pleases others,
Money confirms how much your talent is valued.

But it’s not for the love of money that you make art.
However, wouldn’t it be marvellous
To be rewarded for doing what you love
Rather than trying to love
What others have planned for you?

Keep reaching for your dreams though.
You never know…
One of these days you might be a success.
And even if you’re not,
At least you can say ‘I did my best!’ ✏️
