We had a long talk today about the importance of practice. She asked why I draw so many coffee cups. I said because I’m not as good at it as I want to be. She said that I was very good, way better than her. I said I had more practice. She lamented she wasn’t very good and that she would never be able to do it. I reminded her that she didn’t used to be able to walk, but she practiced and now she can run. She didn’t used to be able to talk. But she practiced and now she can sing. And right now, you don’t think you draw very well, but with practice you’ll be drawing coffee cups with the best of them. Maybe you’ll even draw a cat.
