Have you jumped yet?

I stared out across the underside of the wobbly wing of a well-loved Cessna Skylane. The wind whipped at my face and pulled my clothes tight across my chest. I made peace with the fact that I wasn’t going to land in this plane.

“Art is an adventure into an unknown world, which can be explored only by those willing to take risks.” – Mark Rothko

Sometimes you just have to jump.

The earth spun above and below me. I was a rag doll in the sky. Then, I was back in my body and my breath caught up. Time slowed, and in that weightless space, my fear dissolved into awe. The world below me looked new and it was coming at me fast.

The shift that takes place when we give ourselves permission to leap opens us up to infinite possibilities.

Art is all about that leap. When you step into the unknown trust that you’ll land safely. That trust is where greatness lives. Your art comes with a parachute.

What are you risking when you create?

Are you afraid of art?

Have you jumped yet?
