Did I really make it?
During a conversation with my hairdresser about art she mentioned that it seems I made it. This statement was going around my head for quite a while.
Well, when did you make it? And what?
It seems you made it when you had exhibitions in New York and Paris, sold more than 1650 works of art, and were able to support a family of five as a free-lance artist for twenty years.
This sounds quite wonderful and impressive. And in this sense I can truly say I made it.
But success and all outwards appearances are as fleeting as the smell of the forget-me-nots of my childhood. They are no guarantee for contentment, happiness, and serenity.
