Taking the Leap
I get to be a student today! I’m very excited. I love to learn. About a month and a half ago I signed myself up for a blogging class at the Gotham Writer’s Workshop (don’t you just love that name?). And then of course I got too impatient to wait until after I took the class before I started blogging so I’ve likely subjected you, dear readers (whoever you are…if you even exist), to a whole host of blogging faux pas. Please forgive me. I know not what I do.
But I’ve found that actually, teaching myself and learning as I go is a pretty powerful. It’s served me well in life to jump into things that I know nothing about because sometimes knowing too much is a barrier that keeps me from jumping. There’s also value in figuring out my own perspective about things, before being told how I should think about something.
“Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how. The moment you know how, you begin to die a little. The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.”
― Agnes De Mille
So it will be interesting to see what changes in my blogging, post-blogging-class. But I have to say, I’m glad I got a head-start.
What about you? What leaps have you taken into the dark? What did you learn? What leap will you take today?
