Be Brave.

Saturday, September 19, 2015

I met someone recently who had the words "Be Brave" tattooed to his left forearm in sizable script — I found out later that he'd gotten it done in the midst of a transition from a full-time to freelance career. Henry and I talked about this yesterday over lunch, recounting the quotes and phrases that have meant something to us at times when our worlds have shifted. I keep an entire notebook devoted to words like this but I always return to the same line: Adventure may hurt, but monotony will kill you. I have no idea who said this. But I'm remembering it this weekend, which I'm using as an opportunity to plan new projects, prepare for a new season.
Working on a new POV for next week on this very subject — in the meantime, wishing you all a wonderful, restful, and very happy weekend. Enjoy it!

Wholeheartedly agree with that line, and am so looking forward to seeing/hearing about your new projects unfold.

My quotes are scattered all over various journals these days (I need to get back to updating the Tumblr), but a new-to-me line that I have been focusing on lately, is by Mizuta Masahide: "Barn's burnt down, now I can see the moon."
