Austin Kleon is definitely worth paying attention to…
He borrowed the quote from Amy Krouse Rosenthal, an author of children’s books and a filmmaker.
The more of Amy’s story I read, the more I encourage you to read it as well. Hers was a life of following her creative inspirations and they should inspire us as well. Her shortened life should remind us of how tenuous our own time on earth is.
A few suggestions from this post:
- Pursue your own ideas for noticing
- Look through someone else’s eyes
- Draw what you see
