A quick thought about comfort zones

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

Well, don't people spend so much time getting out of comfort zones. Pushing themselves, forcing themselves to try new things. Stepping outside your comfort zone isn't exactly a new idea, is it? Running away from your comfort zone, from that fear of a rut, and into the arms of something completely new and uncharted.

But what, exactly, is so horribly terrible about comfort zones? I know that they can cause a rut, and a routine, and no new material, the list goes on and on. But what about an artist who pushes their limits and stays in their comfort zone? Is such a thing possible? Or the hardships of a comfort zone... the documentation of such rut and frustration.

That's an idea that interests me.

  1. You have such wonderful words and images - I try to keep up but get lost and yet you seem to forge ahead. You carve your own path in this world and at such a young age have a wisdom and view beyond your years. I wish you were on the other coast in our Portland as you would make an inspiring guide. I will have to continue to be a cyber friend and try to keep up on your adventure. Thanks for letting us in to see the world threw your perspective.

  2. Thank you so much. I'm not so sure I would make a good guide. I find it hard enough to try to guide myself! All I can do is bumble along and hope that by documenting it someone else finds something they need and I find the something I need. If that makes sense.
