“What the hell do you want?”
I said to myself.
“I don’t want to be in the same place as you.”
The way I described it to a friend, the way I was writing it was like I was looking for a new way to live my life, but it was not exactly the same way as the way he and I had been living our lives before the Internet and everything else.
But there was a point at which I just could not let it go.
The fact that I had to describe the experience of being in the presence of a performer was one of the few times I truly understood the extent to which I had created my own identity.
So much of what I do is about my personal relationship to performers.
If you’re not able to connect to them, if you can’t connect to their art, if there’s something about you that’s not there, you are going to have trouble.
You can’t be a fan, or you can be a critic.
You have to be yourself, and you have to have a way of connecting to that.
I found that I could just be myself on stage and in front of people who were interested in the work.
When I was in Los Angeles, I saw a young woman named Mariana in the gallery who was working on a piece called “I Am Not a Woman,” and I said, “You’re doing a piece that says I am not a woman?”
And she said, Yes, I am.
I said: “That’s not what I want to do.
That’s what the art is supposed to be about.”
Then I said I was going to write a song about that and she said: No, it’s not for me.
That was the beginning of a whole new relationship.
The artist was the person in the room, and what I wanted to do was connect with the audience, and I was able to do that through music.
The artists I saw at my first show, when I got there, were doing things that were so different from what I was doing.
When you get out on stage, it doesn’t feel like you’re playing the same instrument as the performers you’re working with.
But it does feel like there is something more than the performer to the artist and there is more to the audience than the performance.
In the past, when people were looking to be artists, they weren’t looking to find a way to connect with a world.
They were looking for the way to be part of a community that was important to them.
But that has all changed.
People are looking to connect in ways that are very different from the way they were able to before the web and social media.
When they see someone else being themselves, it feels very natural to them to be able to express that.
That has given us the power to connect so much more in the way that we do in our personal relationships.
The more we connect, the more connected we become, the happier we become.
In a way, it is the way we are connected to each other that is what makes us human.
The way we live our lives in the present is what really connects us, and that is the most important thing.
The best way to find out if you’re a true artist is to see if you’ve created a piece of art that truly is you.
It is possible.
The next time you see a show, if it’s a show that you’re interested in, don’t let the artist’s performance stop you.
If the audience is excited by what you’re doing, then you are definitely a true performer.
