- us government: *accidentally likes your pic from 2009*
“Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.”
In search of some inspiration I turned to an old journal. Specifically, the one I carried around two summers ago while farming, covoituraging and squatting my way through Europe. For those non-Francophiles out there, the sentence I found scribbled on the inside of its cover translates roughly to “Fearing doesn’t eliminate danger.” Two years later, it’s something I still need to be conscious of, but in the last year or two I’ve also minded that warning as I’ve kept myself moving and growing, rather than just running away.
