BYOC (Bring Your Own Chair) drawing by Laura Lee Gulledge…I’ve been hanging out with the almost-professionals and amateurs, waiting for a spot at the table with the big dogs. Waiting for an invitation, an opening, or to be deemed worthy to join. But recently I realized that’s not how this works. Because there IS no chair for me! I’m a category-defying visionary hence my chair doesn’t exist yet. It’s up to ME to go make one myself, drag it over, and sit down knowing whole-heartedly that I bring something unique and relevant to the table. Scoot over, fellas.
