Thoughts On Embarking

‘Thoughts On Embarking’

In a post from yesterday, Embarking, I shared a wonderful quote from Alan Alda about the need to fully commit to journeys into new and strange things.

The man on the gang plank has his bag loaded as he heads for the boat.

He’s committed to the trip.

Alda is right – you can’t leave yourself safely on the shore when the unknown beckons.

Be bold! Have the nerve, Alda exhorts.

To give an example:

I don’t actually ever discuss the craft of blogging itself on Ebb Then Flood (plenty of people more expert than me do so) but embarking on this blogging journey just under two years ago is the sort of challenge that takes you with it once you actually have the gumption to start.

You can’t hold back, and you have to park that sense of self-doubt I suspect we all have, if you want to blog.

It’s certainly taken me to some strange places as I have, erm, pushed the boat out…

Similarly, I wish you boldness and new creative adventures.
