Relief for procrastinators

by Jini Stolk

I wanted to share this lovely excerpt from a letter written in 1639 by Fulvio Testi, about the artist Velasquez:

“V is making a portrait of your highness which will be marvelous. However, like other men of talent, he has the defect of never finishing and of not telling the truth.”

We all miss deadlines from time to time but if the work is wonderful, carry on. You will be forgiven.
