Is anyone listening?
This is a place of great vulnerability, when you stand on center stage, blinded by the stage lights unable to see into the faces of your audience.
It takes great faith to be an artist… or perhaps you can be a fool given to self abandonment or folly.
A writer experiences this feeling of foolishness when she picks up her pen and begins to write that masterpiece that perhaps no one will ever read.
If you are a genuine artist you are faithful and brave, even on the days when you are too afraid of your own folly to even begin.
You are brave because even though you lose today, you will fight tomorrow; believing with such valor that the path set before you is yours.
Be encouraged, your audience is waiting on the other side of the stage lights.
