flying aerial what?

A few weeks ago, I took a class in aerial fabric yoga. It was a great way to learn new muscle groups, and I hobbled around for about 3 days afterwards, but since then I've been thinking about how trying something new forces us to experience the uncomfortable. The more I experience that "newness" and overcome the fears and doubts associated with going out on a limb, the more I will become used to it, and will learn to push those boundaries both in my art and my life. I've been busy looking for full-time teaching jobs this week, and am once again experiencing the new and strange, and feeling those uncomfortable twinges and doubts. But now I'm able to more easily push them back down, because I know their dirty tricks...

The picture is of me experiencing "aerial down dog". Woof.
