Hi Jan. Thank you so much for commenting on my blog. I wrote a response to your really insightful questions which you can view there. Although if you prefer, I can leave in on this page too. Just let me know.
Hi Jan. I visited your blog (which I loved) and left a message, but not sure it posted so I wrote it here as well:
I loved your blog entry. What is ironic is that I am a teacher by education and trade and a self-taught artist (although I keep saying I want to take courses but cannot seem to find the time). I LOVED your points and they are absolutely true. I also believe that while a formal education (in teaching) helps, you MUST have basic innate skills of patience, compassion, love to learn, enthusiasm and all those points you mention in your blog. I loved it and will come back for more.
