30”x40” acrylic on canvas | Words Don’t Teach
My little brother is having a baby. Im excited, but it got me thinking about how not ready I am to have a kid myself. A baby, to me, is like a point blank aim at my freedom and life. I’ve heard from many about the unexplainable joy of bringing new life into the world. But their words have yet to penetrate my fear. Maybe words don’t teach. Maybe it’s only life experience that actually grounds us in our knowing. Or could be my own monsters making a mess of the idea of all this.
