I referenced an image of moi as captured by @narcissusholmes for this work. Every day I wonder whether I'm taking enough risks artistically ... whether I let myself fully "go there" or whether I chicken out in the process. This wondering sometimes gets me to a point where I feel like an overripe plum about to burst under the sun. I recently expressed this angst to a friend and she replied "Oh, that's going to be a delicious explosion." I thanked her for that wonderful response. It's ok to explode once in a while, right? And to have occasional breakdowns, right? 

BREAKDOWN (#JackJohnson)
I hope this old train breaks down
Then I could take a walk around
And, see what there is to see
And time is just a melody
All the people in the street
Walk as fast as their feet can take them
I just roll through town
And though my windows got a view
the frame I'm looking through
Seems to have no concern for now
So for now
I need this
Old train to breakdown
Oh please just
Let me please breakdown
