Beginning each day terrified
Including today, I have five more days to work on the Kirk Reeves mural at 430 NE Lloyd. In my rational mind, I know it’s totally do-able, but as I write this it doesn’t feel that way.
Over the last week or so, since beginning the mural, I’ve started each day with a big knot of fear in my stomach—big like the mural is big for me. And every day since the first, I’ve reminded myself that, once I have a few hours of work under my belt, I feel perfectly capable. Being away from the mural is the hard part; the work gives me confidence.
