“Be an opener of doors for such as come after thee.” -- Emerson

This is possibly my favorite quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson. I have it laminated on a card I carry in my work portfolio.

I was reminded of it after a call from my old friend Sidney Lawrence III on Sunday. He spent many years as public affairs officer for the Hirschhorn Museum and as a working artist and author at the same time. A new show of his work opened last month in DC, and he also appeared in another venue as a vocalist. You can find both an interview about the art and Sidney singing "La Mer" if you go to u-tube and look under "Sidney Lawrence." He has never stopped opening new doors.

I'm in the process of opening another door with my new business, thrilled to be working with a number of creative people to design and introduce it through a new website next month.

Back to work.
