IMHO, art is about self-expression…BUT. That’s not its true purpose. Its true purpose is to deliver a ready-made reality into the audience’s mind with such clarity and power that their heart cannot help but lift, the mind cannot help but spark, and the blood cannot help but rush. Do I feel nice after I write? Yeah…but the reason I edit so much is because (ultimately) it’s not about me.
Ultimately, I’m trying to make it an act of service.
