I often get inspiration for trying new things from A&S competitions. I am the unyielding logical personality so I don't often enter competitions myself. Many are the projects I have started and not finished because I don't see any logical use for the item I'm working on. I'm trying to get over that. However, I just want those of you who wonder to know that I think that your work in comopetitions does inspire others.

As the bird, we must all learn to fly free. Like the fleur-de-lys, we are all of us three parts of one ... mind, body, and most of all ... spirit.
