Creative Adventurers: Jennifer Lynn Morse

Creative adventurers are artists and makers who do more than sit in the studio. In this monthly feature, I’ll introduce you to an inspiring person who pushes beyond the bounds of the label “artist” or “adventurer.”

Photography is a pretty ubiquitous art form these days. Everyone has a camera and everyone takes pictures. But in an age of millions of digital snaps, Jennifer Lynn Morse takes a different approach. She creates timeless works on film, often using techniques first invented and perfected during the early years of photography.

Liz Clark is a badass.

I guess it’s always hard when you are in a new place. You don’t have a community yet. You don’t have friends to help you laugh and de-stress. I have definitely felt like I have had some pretty depressed moments here in London. But some people make it look really easy. Like this gal, Liz Clark.

She’s so inspiring! I stumbled on her blog while looking around at surfing stuff. She is a professional soul surfer who seeks out waves from her sailboat – solo. She sailed around the Pacific and logged stories from her journey along the way in her blog. I spent a couple of hours going through the backlog, and it’s well worth it if you need reminding about the infinite possibilities of life.

The idea of sailing anywhere alone is pretty intimidating to me, never mind traveling in a totally foreign place alone. There’s just so much to go wrong on a boat. But she doesn’t seem fazed.

More than anything, her adventures are a good reminder than our lives are a product of our own decisions. Tired of your job/boyfriend/location/situation – change it. All it takes is a self-discipline.
