Dear Artist

Dear Artist,

The world needs you to keep feeling. You may find as I do, that your life is consumed by extreme happiness, extreme loneliness, extreme sadness. And although at times these extremes can be crippling, they are also the very reason your art is appreciated. People want to feel, and you do.

Feel hungry, feel broken, feel wrong, feel love, feel loss. And if ANYONE tells you that you are too emotional.

Tell them to live in a world without art.
