the opening speech

Welcome to camp To experimentation To “done” projects To progress over perfection Welcome to choosing creativity first To moving from an authentic space From the fire that is barely a flicker From that part I know is still there Welcome to the part beyond fear Like a great oak in the woods 30m after rainful We call it courage ‘cause we see big roots and towering branches Yet a whisper from the wind show droplets of doubt are still there (Perhaps we won’t ever shake the fear complete?) Welcome to public practice To 31 days of metaphorical tagliatelle kissing Digitally tiled walls Sauce dripping Words slipping Ego tripping Imagination skipping Whist The Lerial logs the consistency clippings Welcome Welcome Welcome Welcome
