Le Saut sans le vide (Leap Into the Void) by Yves Klein
“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.” ― Kurt Vonnegut
I have dedicated September and October as time to celebrate the freedom of my creative spirit. I have never been afraid of taking risks. However, I can still forget on occasion that to be truly productive and creative means that you also must be willing to recognize obstacles that could forcefully dictate your path or require that you to stay on level ground. When you have a mission to follow and a passion to fuel, you must jump over and over again. As I embark on new creative adventures this Fall, I will take along Vonnegut's wisdom and Klein's famous image to help me remember that only new realities and personal growth can come from taking a leap of faith.
