I think of myself as a connector. I travel between circles and I leave them overlapped. I’m a bashful extrovert – a shy socialite. Sometimes I’m afraid of my voice… so I write. At times I try to hide in the shadows but my light often leaves me exposed. I’m wide open even when I am closed. I’m bare naked even when I am clothed. I want to soar but I’m afraid to leap. I want to be heard yet I’m afraid to speak.
I FEEL THE FEAR AND I DO IT ANYWAY
