Comparison is the thief of joy.

Two projects in one. My calligraphy, and a phone photo a day.

This is a book the calligraphy guild will be adding to each meeting, so I figured what better to put on the cover than a reminder that I should just try and improve on my own abilities, instead of be sad that I will always see someone who is better than me. But, the funny thing is, I'll never get better without comparison, I have to compare. The trick is to remember that I have to keep working even when comparison steals the joy. Does that make sense? I have to get to a point where I am happy with my work, so I don't have to compare as often.
