The Unknown Territory

There are many things to be said about the unknown: it's inherently frightening. It's the ultimate temptress. It's death and rebirth. Art wouldn't exist without it. And still so many of us try to avoid it out of fear to unearth the dark and messy sides of life. But that's where the magic happens, people. In this spirit I want to share a couple of quotes from adventurers unafraid of the darkness within and outside of themselves.

In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity
— Albert Einstein
Only when he no longer knows what he is doing, does the painter do good things.
— Edgar Degas

Amen, sister. Now go out and explore a little.
