An artist is blessed and cursed with vision.
Blessed, because she has the ability to make it visible.
Cursed, because that does not guarantee anyone will be open to that vision.
But whether or not she has an “audience,” an artist must say what is in her to say.
When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.” ~ Audre Lorde
