Today is the eve of the first Walk Through of 2012. The dawning of what we boldly called….the brand new era.
So if we’re so bold, why is my heart racing a mile a minute?
Last night as we dotted our final i’s and crossed the remaing t’s, I shot Julia an email that said why do I feel like we’re forgetting something. Like y’know….a bride. :) Is it just pre-game jitters? She assured me that it was. That we had our beautiful bride Spring coming down. And that she had it all well under control. Which knowing Julia, I have no doubt that she does.
And yet. And yet….I jitter. I’m kinetic. You could power a watch with this perpetual motion.
Perhaps it’s because it’s been six months since our last Walk Through (how is that possible?) and I need to remember how to do this. :) Perhaps it’s because we tried to challenge ourselves in every way to step up our game. To make this round of Walk Throughs the most challenging, dig deeper, do something that counts set of teaching that we’ve ever done. And now we have to actually do it. Perhaps it’s because tonight a group of photographers from all over the country will descend upon downtown New Haven for the meet & greet, where I’ll get to hug them all for the first time. Perhaps it’s because I have no idea what to wear.
But whatever it is, I jitter.
And yet. And yet… I take comfort in my jittering. Because if you’re scared to death, it means you actually care. It means it matters to you. And if you’re scared to death, but you’re willing to step out into that fear anyway….well that’s the place where miracles happen.
So to all of us out there who jitter, I say….rage on. Let’s make something happen.
PS: we are going to be announcing the next Walk Through *very* shortly after we wrap this one up. Be sure to get on the newsletter by clicking on the link below, to be the first to know!
