Regardless of the people who have been there before and those who will come in the future. For now, it's yours. The best part is how scared all these people are of it. Doesn't matter if it's huge or a dinky little raised up area in the corner of a bar. You are immediately the minority in the place if your willing to get up and stare all these people back in the face. Full well knowing that you are now on display for anyone to criticize, laugh at, make fun of, compare themselves too and oh god what if something goes wrong? I could forget, trip, maybe they wont like it, maybe they don’t care.
I feel like the whole world is a small town sometimes. So many opinions and critics. Except when you're doing your art. No one there, in that moment, can criticize. for that time you're there it's yours so long as you embrace it. All the excuses and worries can't come with you. They have to be left at the door and they can only be picked up once you've come back from there.
On The Stage and in our art.........you can't touch me. The critics will come later, the people will have their opinions and maybe then it will sting a little. But, then I remind myself that it's the Art. No score, no ego, no comparisons should be made. Cause someone, somewhere will love it, No matter what the rest of them say.
In an Absence Of Heroes it's just us. Be part of The Difference, Arm Yourself.
