Risks at the Crossroads

When is taking a risk worth it? When is the fear well-founded I interrupt the post I have scheduled for today to talk about something completely different.

There's a tendency, though, to forget other art out there; things like sculpture, dance, and even the culinary arts. For the final post of Work in …
