Sunday Meditations: Upon Jumping Off the Dock


For whatever you have to do, in whatever time or place, you have to eventually jump off the dock.  You have to take a deep breath, plug your nose if necessary, and take that leap into what might be pleasantly warm waters - or in most cases... water on the unpleasant side.

I put off painting for so long.  I kept telling myself that I didn't have time, that I wasn't inspired, that I wasn't good enough.  Tonight, I scouted out a picture and just jumped.  


Was the water cold?  A little.  But it felt warmer the longer I was swimming around.
