Discipline

Art is a discipline.

One at which I fail frequently.

I had promised myself that I would post on this blog at least once a week; but I let it fall to the wayside far too often.

I had promised myself that I would practice piano twice a week at least. I haven’t touched it since I got to college.

I had promised myself that I would sew at least enough to keep my clothes in good repair, but my mending box overflows.

The most I have done regularly is to sketch my professors in the margins of my notebooks.  (I think my faces are getting better.)

Thus, I have failed at practicing the majority of my arts in my month-and-a-bit at college.

This is why we must practice art in community. Practicing self-discipline is hard, but doing it alone is even harder. Encouragement is vital to a healthy artistic life.

Please forgive me for neglecting the arts that I practice.
