To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
To place your ideas, your dreams
before the crowd is to risk being called naive.
To love is to risk not being loved in return.
To live is to risk dying.
To hope is to risk despair, and to try is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken because the greatest hazard
in life is to risk nothing.
The person who risks nothing does nothing,
and becomes nothing.
He may avoid suffering and sorrow,
but he simply cannot learn and feel
and change and grow and love and live.
Chained by his certitudes,
he is a slave,
he’s forfeited his freedom.
Only the person who risks is truly free.”
This work was a real risk of departure for me.
I learned so much about myself while sweating out the details on this one.
I am proud of myself for becoming a risk taker, one who is undaunted by fear, willing to go first, willing to stand up for myself and what I believe in, willing to be Raw and Radiant, willing to risk myself and my ego for my passions.
It’s not easy to expose yourself, I think it’s even harder to expose yourself to your own inner core, because no matter where you go…you are always there. It’s not like you can un-learn a truth about yourself.
So, here I am world.
Bare Naked to this life.
And loving every skin peeling moment of it.
Life is an adventure…
and I am looking for treasure.
A machine of love…
programmed for living.
I may have some new pictures of the three works
I am currently sweating over (aaaiiieee!) to share later in the day…
but in the next couple of days for sure, so stay tuned.
