  1. So, I’ve been thinking about what you said, with regard to Giacometti. I can see his point of view, but I also see the fear that kept him place. Fear of what COULD happen, of what MIGHT happen. Instead of taking a chance, and living a different life, to see what that might inspire in his art, he played it SAFE and stayed where he was. He was afraid to risk changing, moving, or doing anything, and lived his life in the same spot for fear of what would happen if he moved. Crippling fear. It may have been because of his past experience, as you said, but the fact remains, that he couldn’t overcome his fear of the past and dragged it into his everyday life and pushed it into the future of maybe’s. No one knows what’s going to happen but most of us jump into the pool and see if we can swim. He was paralyzed with fear, too afraid to see what else what out there. Too afraid to risk what he already knew and had. Fear of disappointment, of poverty. He let his fear control him. The book won’t be delivered for a bit. It’s being mailed. I got a used copy because I wanted the original one.
