"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

The Show Must Go On

When tragedy strikes, it is our job as creators - writers, musicians, dancers, actors, etc - to continue on with our work.

It is our job to create a space, a diversion, a song, so that those who are in the midst of immeasurable pain and sadness, can escape their own life for a minute or two and breathe. 

The Show Must Go On.

You owe it, as a creative who has embraced their calling, to find ways to help heal others' pain.

Write your lyrics, strum your guitar, lace up your ballet shoes, and help heal those who need it most.

My heart goes out to everyone affected by these terrible events these last few days.

The Show Must Go On.
