Choose your own, then render it in your favorite medium.
I love the word adventure: not only is it filthy with possibility, it’s imbued with the notion that whatever I choose to do and discover, surprise awaits.
In a recent Discover feature, we profiled serial adventurer Drew Robinson who tackles hiking trails at home and abroad. He recalls walking the Camino de Santiago and the influence it had on him. His words gave me pause, emphasis mine:
That pilgrimage changed me in the most beautiful way. Walking 20 miles a day for a month really gives the mind the freedom it needs to contemplate what’s important.
The wonderful thing about adventure is the sheer range of options: there’s no need to leave home (or even your chair!) to have an adventure if you write, paint, sculpt, draw, compose, or take photographs. Every creative endeavor is an adventure of its own with the chance to change us “in the most beautiful way.”
This challenge is wide-open to interpretation for writers, photographers, artists, and composers. Render an adventure — real or imaginary — in your chosen medium, tell us what adventure means to you, or share the adventure(s) you dream of having.
