you are buying more then just a painting
or a novel or a song. You are buying hundreds
of hours of experimentation and thousands of
failures. You are buying days, weeks, months, years
of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are

to do something they are truly passionate about :
something that makes all of the above worth the fear
and the doubt : something that puts the life into the living.
