Day 17 of #artjournaladvent2022 Every day, I receive a prompt to create a page in my advent art journal. Today's prompt was FEARLESS I’m 53 today. I am not fearless. But I have learned to live with fear. I give it a chair at the table. Because fear is useful. It plays a role in our life. It keeps us safe. Sometimes from things that no longer represent a danger.
