    Some say the 'fear of speaking' is a worse fate than fear of death itself...when it comes to people and facing their fears.

By becoming conscious to this fact, you can overcome it and be that engaging and inspiring storyteller! Instead of me going on with my prose...watch this...it's a great story that is shared in an engaging and brilliant way: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-science-of-stage-fright-and-how-to-overcome-it-mikael-cho

The Impossibility of Nature

What comes of a synthesis of plastic into our natural world at the microscopic level? The repetitive use of natural detritus brings Shona Wilson closer to understanding the world we share. The materials that make up her work are storehouses of knowledge and information. They act as 'keys', unlocking doors to memory, science, history and imagination. In "The Impossibility of Nature" at PKN Forster Vol. 2 her current work increasingly responds to and reflects upon the cross-pollinations between nature, humans and culture, referencing in particular, plastics' invasion into the 'natural' world.

Dozier Bell, an artist in Rockland, Maine, elaborates on her drawings that encompass natural and conscious elements of the world. In "Living in Sublimity" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 19 we see her artwork, in its simplicity, lessens our human understanding of these natural forces and gives us a greater sense of sublimity to our surroundings.
