Leaping


“Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.”

There are many opinions as to what this quote means and who to attribute it to, but Einstein is the popular choice. Two things happened today which brought me to it. One is that I found there is many problems where I'm now working and it doesn't seem it will change soon after a lengthy discussion with higher ups about the issues. The second I went on a gallery walk with friends and found myself amongst people whose language I was speaking. In other words, if I think I can keep working in my current profession and be happy, I must be insane, because it keeps not working out over the last 4 years. It worked once upon a time, but I'm no longer that once upon a time person. My happiest and most passionate moments are around my art. Tonight I saw many people with personality traits I possess. It was like releasing the breath I didn't know I had been holding. I'm beginning to look at nut and bolts of making the leap. I meet three very inspirational people tonight who made the leap and they shared some of how they did it...

I've been working with frames a good deal the past few days and this continues the trend. I'm working on this photo for a show that I'm going to take a leap of faith on and enter.
