Whoever posted the quote
"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people
always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become
great."
by Mark Twain
really made my day. My married name is Clemens, and Mark Twain is a distant
relative on my husband's side. My husband has been totally unsupportive of my
career move from freelance graphic designer/illustrator to elementary art
teacher. (mainly for economic reasons...we all know how much teachers make,
and I am at a Catholic school, which pays even less). I blew it up and stuck
it in his office over his desk. He has not seen it yet. Wonder if he will
get it. I have to follow my heart, you see.
