excellent read, great analogy. to get somewhere, you have to 1) keep going, and 2) pay attention to where you are.

Speaking as someone who doesn't know which bus to get on, I'll have to stick to photographing them as they leave the bus station carrying all the real photographers... ;)

I've been to Helsinki a couple of times, but I never noticed the bus station. However, I have been to the train station and I found it quite weird in that although the trains come in from the north I always had the strongest feeling they came in from the south. Quite disorientating, but maybe it's just my southern hemisphere upbringing.
And I had someone to pick me up from the station so I didn't need to take the bus. I guess that's why my photography has no direction, too.

Great read. I liked the analogy of a life's work to a trek up a mountain. I see that it was excerpted from a commencement speech; what great food for thought for those graduates.
Been to Helsinki, twice. Never to the bus station though. So I guess I've finally discovered why I sometimes feel that I've "missed the bus!"

It certainly must be your Southern Hemisphere roots, the trains would have a few problems coming from the South :) Bus station is quite a grandiose term for what is in fact about 4 bus stops grouped together.

Good read though.

Love it! The part about the mountain is also quite profound.

"So, be the caretaker of your vision. Make it famous. And above all, remember, that art is risk made visible."

Bingo!
