"So many vessels waiting for their journey. Some will take the easy route sailing smooth waters to a predictable destination. Others will dare to sail into choppy waters venturing blindly into the unknown hoping to discover new territory… one that’s been waiting for us all along.
"I don't know what makes one person choose to look at the unknown. Perhaps it’s that burning desire to express an idea-sing, shout, play, dance and in the process discover that thing that opens our soul and gives us our unique identity.
True, we are all passionate to create and express ideas. Some of us do it unconsciously—and, without even knowing it, we use our creativity in conversation, spontaneous dance or distinctive dress to express ourselves. Some of us work with more specific skills in music, photography, painting, video or theater to express our passions.
For us we understand that this is really about desire—a very disciplined desire. There will be pain, failures and rabbit holes that tumble us to new depths, but with commitment and a willingness to look within to find a our inner strength, we will find light at the end of the tunnel. This journey is really all about the hard work of finding our heart and when we find it, genuine art and creativity follow. No amount of pretending will alter that reality."
