Today I went back to an old medium and method. Basket weaving. For a while now I have been wanting to go back to this material, but it never felt like the right time to do so until now. Currently I have been playing around with reed and cane along with random additions of branches and a wooden frame. I am not sure where this is going but that is a part of experimenting, embracing the unknown.
A professor once told me 'What's the point of creating something exactly like the way you imagined it? Where's the journey? Where's the growth? Is it simply for the enjoyment of others to look at?" The unknown is a scary thing and often times causes a sense of apprehension to take the next step. Embracing the unknown is learning to let go of complete control. Letting go doesn't mean giving up it means giving yourself a chance to experience something new and learning from it. I am definitely still working on that (in multiple areas of my life). So here is me taking one step at a time into the unknown.
