The mistaken assumption that’s being made is that what is being seen is something that is reasonably within reach. That it’s possible that my boundaries encompasses the work of others. It’s very much akin to saying “I could do that”… but I know this isn’t true at all. I fantasize that I am skillful in ways that I am not and will openly say as much.
Longing is inherent to my nature and its the lure that motivates me into action. I long to be something I am not, something more than I am now.
I’m familiar with heading off in a direction with a destination in mind only to discover along the way my natural inclinations predictably create challenges particular to myself. It’s these challenges that create my boundaries, not my lack of skill sets. An inability to maintain focus, a perpencity for physicality as well as impulsiveness… What I can’t do is what I habitually push against, and I push aginst what I can’t do by believing that what is being seen is something that is reasonably within reach.
