Why is it that the best things are also the hardest things?
I began a love relationship with a wonderful woman who lives in Germany late September of 2018. I was there for three months and then she came for a week in December. I went back in February for three weeks and now have booked a flight for a one month stay all of May. This relationship has been so rich and rewarding but it also represents a great challenge.
We can do so much more than we realize.
I remember hearing the analogy of the flight component in an airplane that warns the pilot if he flys too high. The speaker was telling us that we had a sort of inner gage inside of us that warned us when we were going too far, trying too hard. the problem is that our gage is set way too low and we can “fly” in our lives much higher than we think we can.

Press into what feels impossible and surprise yourself.
I am writing this blog from the living room of Carter Foster’s home in Austin Texas. It was just six years ago that Carter came to my home town of Grand Rapids Michigan when he was still a curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art in NYC. I crashed a private party I wasn’t invited to in hopes of meeting him. Six years later I am doing a two week artist residency in his home here in Austin. Go take a leap doing something that scares you and see how good it feels once you’ve taken that first step.
