Susan Boyle is a sensational role model for keeping the channel open, no matter what. We can all be inspired by her willingness to embrace her talent and let it out into the world. And as a follow-up to my post about her yesterday, I thought it fitting to revisit Martha Graham’s famous words to Agnes DeMille:
There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.
Why not start now?
