i can't imagine not being on this path of "artistic no collar-ness", i'm a professional photographer that is not formally trained and i felt afraid many times and still do but feeling the fear means your growing, learning and taking chances.
i hope you all feel afraid today and grow from it.
(ok... but not like the "tower of terror" fear in disneyland kind because that's a fuck up fear that is not required in the growing process! just saying. that shit's not ok. or needed. so don't feel any pressure when your kids push you to go on it. tell them to go suck a lollypop!)
