"A ship in harbour is safe, but that is not what ships are built for"
–John A. Shedd, “Salt from My Attic”, 1928
Stepping out into new ventures can be a little scary. At least that’s true for me. Fortunately, cravings for new experiences overpower my anxieties.
Like a ship in times of old sailing out to uncharted waters, when we travel and engage in new learning experiences, we take risks. Immersing ourselves in new experiences makes us vulnerable.
This same vulnerability can leave us open and receptive to valuable new ways of seeing and being in the world. As artists, or for those venturing into the world of art-making for perhaps the first time, this is the perfect learning environment.
