“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.” – E.E. Cummings
A person I love recently read some E.E. Cummings to me and it really influenced my perspective. I started to re-read his work. I came upon this and was so inspired I wanted to share it with all of you. The truthfulness in these words is truly inspiring and I couldn’t help but think of the artistic community I hold so dearly in my heart. We are all involved in this struggle to remain true to ourselves and yet still be able to communicate to others. I am intuiting that this is a fine message to take into the new year.
Take care of you and all you love and keep being you,
