Classes, books, mentors, sages. Gather the best, right materials, resources to build the perfect machine. Tweak the details, adjust the mechanics, polish. Unload unnecessary baggage. If the plane doesn’t take flight, go back to the drawing board to learn from the inevitable mistakes. Stay grounded, but look up. Always look up. Someday, the artist, writer is cleared for take-off. She will fly, soar, kiss the stars.
