"Huckleberry Finn escapes his father’s clutches and heads down the Mississipi River to save himself. He rebels against the rules of his culture– that he go to school, that he attend church, that he obey his father– and, by lighting out, opts for adventure and exploration instead. 
Huckleberry Finn is a great yarn, but it is also a metaphor for the creative journey, which requires that we escape the clutches of every day thinking and culturally determined behaving and explore life in a personal way, seeking out adventures. We need to explore bayous so as to paint them and to experience sunsets so as to write about them.
Few of us do enough exploring.” #nkfieldtrip > Sign up at Eventbrite.
