be a lion

It takes a lot of courage just to be an artist or creative person, more than most people realize. I wonder how many of you give yourself credit for daring to just communicate something in the way you want.

On, I saw videos related to "Be A Lion", the fantastic song from the Broadway musical hit, "The Wiz", and this ran through my mind afterward. As a creative person, you run the risk of getting back insensitive comments from people who wouldn't know talent if it kicked them ... but you also receive acknowledgments, even gratitude, from people whose lives you effected in some positive way: a smile in their day, an inspiration, a desperately needed hope ...

I think it's worth the risk!
