a sculptor

Michelangelo would say that when he looked at a massive piece of marble he already could see what was inside.  His job was just to chip away at the outside and reveal what was there.



This is the way I feel sometimes about my life.  Not so much a predestination, but a plan.  A plan that asks for me to keep certain rules and live by certain values, so that things can play out to my best interest.

My hammers and chisels are gospel principles and my free will.  These are my tools.  And then I see the inside of the block.  And it is beautiful.

Here is my idea (an yes I'll only take 5 %)....WRITE A BOOK...and of course name it Kazzy's Ponderings.
You have so many great stories,...and they are not long, just powerful enough to get one thinking.

We see on pinterest ALL THE TIME, all the saying, inspirational, motivational by so and so (who are all of these people anyway)
YOUR sayings (stories) are just as meaningful.
Yup....a book.

I have a soft spot for sculpture and particularly this theme. I absolutely believe you're carving a masterpiece. I've never seen you create anything any other way.

Short but so powerful and beautiful. I need to get out my tools and get sculpting!
