Some might say this has been a tw@ of a year. In truth it hasn’t. It’s been rather good although it hasn’t always felt so.
Learning is good, the point at which I stop learning is the point at which I stop. There has been much learning this year. First steps are often difficult, it has felt like a year of first steps.
I often remind myself (and others) of the afternoon that I spent trying to use a bezier curve tool to draw a simple ‘u’ shape. I just couldn’t get it at all. This helps when progress seems slow or episodic.
Anyway, every day is learning at the moment, mainly the techy stuff. Sometimes though you come across things that don’t quite fit, like this.
Act without doing; work without effort. Think of the small as large and the few as many. Confront the difficult while it is still easy; accomplish the great task by a series of small acts. The Master never reaches for the great; thus she achieves greatness. When she runs into a difficulty, she stops and gives herself to it. She doesn't cling to her own comfort; thus problems are no problem for her.
