Being at Baldwin has been such a significant experience, and its impact on me unfolds more and more as the days pass. When I arrived, I was in between creative projects and unsure of the path ahead. The ability to be still and in my own creative rhythm truly allowed me to see my own self-imposed limitations. Being able to sit under a beautiful tree, read essays and poetry, produce music, and watch the beautiful water of the reservoir did so much for my spirit. I started my week thinking I was at a crossroads, trying to pick between two paths. Baldwin made me realize that there is a multitude of possibilities in my grasp, and I can forge my own way. I’m incredibly inspired and ready to follow those pursuits back home.
