Everyone has a story (or two) to tell. Yes, our different background and experience lend unique perspectives to tell our tales. Collectively, these are our human story.
Putting words on paper however is a different matter. Not everyone can articulate their story in easy to understand prose. To be authentic and expressive is not a given. It takes practice. Lot of them.
Hence, my hat off to performing artists, writers, and the likes. From journey-person to maestro, each one putting themselves out there. Articulating. Interpreting. Expressing. Through their efforts we connect more as a whole.
