CLAIMING

When I claim to be a writer, people say, “Really? What have you published?” I only know to answer, “I’m a writer, not a publisher.”

When I claim to be a painter they say, “No kidding! What have you sold?” I only know to answer, “I’m a painter, not a salesman.”

When I claim to be a blogger, many say , “Great! How many followers?” I only know to answer, “I’m a blogger, not a leader.”

To BE something do you have to be GOOD at it? When Cervantes’s painter depicted a rooster, he had to label it “This is a rooster.” He WAS a painter, just a BAD one.

About JMN

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day, and watch Netflix and Prime Video for entertainment. I like to read and memorize poetry.
