When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”~ Paul Coelho

"Some Mad Hope..."
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Jane Harrison

Tiger Woods

Perhaps you might not think this is related to Art, but it absolutely is. Tiger Woods is the ultimate artist because in essence there is an "Art" to any discipline. It is the perpetual aspiration for excellence...anything done well is an art. His life, his drive, his focus...pure masterpieces. And what is key, is that he continues to progress and improve.
"Tiger's Birdie Caps Thrilling Comeback" (although the use of the term "comeback" is questionable:)
Deified maybe?...but well deserved.
Tiger is as inspiring as an master work of art hanging in any major museum. He reminds me that it is about the process...the doing and working. And it truly is like viewing a master work of art, when you witness,desire,passion,talent and discipline at it's best. Awesome!
