A few years ago when I first started painting again, I came across a journal page with this quote and it’s always stuck with me (though all this time I thought it was Rumi, not Rilke). I think about it so much, unfolding. I feel so closed up all the time, never loose enough, never the full version of myself. How do I become brave and true?
So, this week’s theme is Unfold. At the end of the week I’ll be out of my natural habitat, and into a strange one. I’m headed to Bonnaroo. Though I’ve been there before, every music festival is a unique experience and a test of my limits. Note to self: have fun. do not stay folded.
I hope we all do something brave this week. We need to unfold.
