“Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man’s (a human’s Ed) growth without destroying his (their Ed) roots.”

- Frank A. Clark


I am unfortunately reminded of the art school teachers that destroyed my passion for drawing and the photography critic that crushed my love of colour.  Don’t drown people with your worthless opinions.  Nurture them with encouragement and love.
