One has to wonder if any work of art is ever truly complete, or if deadlines, self imposed and otherwise, are the only way the artist can be turned from her
insatiable innate desire to edit, edit, and edit again drawn by the hope of some small in an elusive pursuit of perfection revelation.
“Finishing is torture… There’s always some newly seen flaw. But the little glimpses of beauty between the anxiety make it worth it.” ~ Jacob Collins
One of Lesley-Anne’s current poems in progress is posted HERE on her Buddy Breathing blog. She continues to edit.

She takes the time to be quiet and listen, finding inspiration and then releasing the creativity in herself and others. Lesley-Anne is particularly passionate about young people, desiring to help them find their purpose and see how important and lovely they are. She will be performing her poetry at the Mission Branch of the library on Oct 17th at 6:45 PM. Today Lesley-Anne Evans is In Focus. LINK TO FULL ARTICLE.
