The unknown always comes with an edge. Today I finished The Creative’s Workshop. When I started the workshop, it was the unknown.
An introductory instruction was to tag strangers in our posts. Everyone was a stranger. It felt scary. The administrators insisted tagging people was generous and soon tagging people was as natural as signing onto Facebook when I’m bored.
Now that the workshop is complete and its end is the edge of the unknown. What’s next? If I don’t post on the website, who am I? That edge will be dull soon too, and some other unknown will present itself.
It’s hard to dampen my fear of the pulse of the unknown. Fear is taken seriously when it arises with good reason. As I’m moving out of the workshop, I aspire to recognize the false fear of the creative edge more quickly, and move forward with it.
