I got home from work today, checked my mailbox, and found the most beautiful piece of mail I have ever received, from Maria & Rick at z e n t a n g l e ® . It literally took my breath away, and I wish there'd been someone else here to share it with. I almost didn't want to open it - but I was awfully curious to know what was inside. I carefully sliced through the top edge of the envelope to find my invitation to the CZT Seminar Number 12, with one of Maria's amazing botanical paintings and graceful calligraphy quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson:
"Every Artist was first an Amateur . . . all art requires courage."
