A message to students starting in new places: space is not a constant size.
A building might seem huge, but in a month it will feel smaller because you know it better.
The gaps in your knowledge in a new subject might seem huge, but with daily practice and study, you will soon find that success is a manageable distance away.
A new choir might seem scary, but the emotional space between you and your fellow singers will grow smaller as you make music together and grow to know each other.
Space is not a constant size: it is subject to our perceptions.
