In the very beginning ideas often are fragile. Clouded by uncertainty.
When I stare at a blank sheet of paper its emptiness can be terrifying.
Yet, similar to silence, it is exactly this intimidating tranquility
of emptiness which provides the room for a new thought.
Daring to do something new takes courage. Courage to face emptiness.
Maybe more fascinating, it requires emptiness to begin with.
We shape clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside,
that holds whatever we want.
— Lao Tzu, Dao De Jing
