Words for a Wednesday

Someone has a great fire in his soul and nobody ever comes to warm themselves at it, and passers-by see nothing but a little smoke -  Vincent Van Gogh


Do you feel this as a writer/artist?

  1. I'm in the process of trying to fan my own flame. Hopefully someone will notice!

    I was going to say that quote's a little depressing, but given who it's attributed to it's understandable.

  2. Hi Joanne - no ... I think I've learnt loads in the last 15 years or so and so can adjust - especially as I'm not a genius ... but do feel for Van Gogh and all others in similar situations. Take care - Hilary

  7. Arrrgh! What a depressing outlook! No, I don't relate, but then again, I'm no genius, and I never expected anybody to warm their hands at my "fire."
