"Building a personal style, creatively understanding oneself, seeking out those whose work and vision coincides - this is not something that can be accomplished overnight, or by giving in to the ever-changing whim of the moment. It is the work of a lifetime. And it is only possible when a sense of self is present: knowing every facet of oneself, trusting one's "eye" and heart, and being fearless."
I wish I had said that. Instead, the above was a comment on Cathy Horyn's blog by Visone or, as I discovered through Twitter, a Ms. Susan Crawford from somewhere in the Hudson Valley. I tried Twitter several months ago and was underwhelmed by the president of Zappos describing his hotel room in Dallas or where ever. But I'm going to try again, if for no other reason, than to listen carefully to Ms. Crawford.
