This article was one of my greatest privileges to write and when I saw this quote that was pulled to share online and in the magazine I was really happy. One of the greatest things I have learned is that whatever each and every person has to share is of value. I was extremely and painfully shy when I was growing up and still often feel as though I shouldn't have spoken up or shared something. But then I began to receive the most wonderful feedback from other people who feel exactly the same way I do and now don't feel so alone. So, I'm glad I've taken the leap to share publicly how I feel about things, especially about art in my life. If what I share helps someone else to feel better, more connected, than I feel better, too. There is nothing more wonderful than connecting with another person.
