Word Of The Day

"Artists are some of the most courageous people on the face of the earth. They deal with more rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime. Every day, artists face the financially challenge of living a freelance lifestyle, the disrespect of people who think they should get 'real' jobs, and their own fear that they will never work again. Every day they have to ignore the possibility to which they have dedicated their lives is a pipe dream. With every passing year many of them watch as other people their age; achieve the predictable milestones of normal life - the car, the family, the house, the nest egg. But they stay true to their dream, in spite of sacrifices. Why? Because artists are willing to give their entire lives to a moment - to that line, that laugh, that gesture, or that interpretation that will stir the abundance's soul. Artists are beings that have tasted lives nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched another heart. In that instant, they were as close to magic, God and perfection as anyone could ever be. And in their own hearts, they know that to dedicate oneself to that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes." - David Ackert
