One of the biggest hurdles for me in doing something new is that I really don't like failures anymore. Truth is, I've never been comfortable with failures and it keeps me from taking chances. Good trait for staying alive, but not so good if you want to gain new skills.. Over the next few months, I'll share some of my experiences. Mostly, it's been good stuff to share and luckily I didn't take pictures of some of the more stressful moments in learning to warp with a paddle. But, I'll write a bit about it in a later post.
This project was outside my color comfort zone and was therefore appropriate for my year long study.
