Heart and Soul...

“When I begin to lose heart, it does me good to recall a lesson in the dignity of art which I learned years ago at a theater in Assisi, in Italy. Helena and I had gone to see an evening of pantomime and no one else showed up. The two of us made up the entire audience. When the lights dimmed, we were joined by the usher and the ticket seller. Yet despite the fact that there were more people on stage than in the audience, the actors worked as hard as if the were basking in the glory of al full house on opening night. They put their hearts and souls into the performance and it was marvelous.”
--Eduardo Galeano, in The Book of Embraces

Tricia’s Thoughts:

Who do you write for? Will you put your heart and into your work even if you know it would never be a bestseller? Would you write as diligently if you knew only two would read your words? Or would you give all for simply an audience of One?

Don’t lose heart. Give it your all. With every word. Every story.
