Ever get the feeling that the universe is trying to tell you something?
In January, music artist be.steadwell came to town. I had the opportunity to see her perform incredible music, and I also attended a songwriting workshop with her. At the end of that workshop, she said, “If you want to make music, make music. Don’t wait for permission.”
A few nights ago, I heard the brilliant and witty Dr. Roxane Gay speak. Of all the morsels of insight she shared, one thing in particular stayed with me. She said, “Keep something for yourself.”
Last night, I heard Yesika Salgado share some of her poetry and stories from her life. She said, “If you feel like you might want to share your work, go public. The world needs your story and your voice.“
Thankful for these brilliant women who share their talents and their stories and have encouraged me to do the same.
