|ARCATA MARSH SKY|
I am still working on my issues of the ego. I understand that I am a good photographer, and that my work is appreciated by many. But I still become mired in self-doubt and I listen to the critic within whenever my work is not chosen for a juried show. I realize that I "win some and lose some", and that it all balances out, but I still want to be valued by others as a worthy artist.
The good news is that I am aware of this, and that I just keep on placing myself in situations where I get to practice my detachment from my ego. I have no idea how long it will take, but I am cautiously optimistic that my learning from the lessons is becoming easier with each one.
