From the recording Just Like You
one of the greatest gifts self-expression has to offer is the opportunity to make something beautiful (a song, poem, painting, dance, film) out of something not so pretty (grief, loss, disappointment, frustration, anger). this song came out of a fairly minor disappointment, but it's about more than just that one experience; it's about taking chances, opening yourself up, being vulnerable and feeling - intensely - as a result. for me, emotional risk is a way of life. i don't protect my heart from getting broken, i just become more adept at putting the pieces back together.
