The Grand Canyon is awesome, ancient, and artful. Compared to that wonder, we are so small. Compared to that ancient place we are like a breath in time. Compared to the glory of that palette and that canvas, we and all we do are like dust in grays and brown.

However, we don’t need to compare ourselves to the great wonders of the world. Sometimes that is exactly what we do, though, and that kind of thinking holds us back from seeing an awe in our everyday lives and our art. We don’t need to compare ourselves to anyone. We need to be ourselves, give our all, and find our part in all that awesome.
