Wasted Talent


I came across this quote while watching LAaRT on PBS and think it is one of the most amazing things I’ve read – just had to share:

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And, if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.
– Martha Graham

At first I was inspired, and then a little sad. It also reminded me of another quote I heard in the movie “A Bronx Tale.” Chazz Palminteri’s charachter, Sonny,┬ásaid, “The saddest thing in life is wasted talent.”

I believe we are creative beings and it’s sad when people don’t bring their inner beauty to light…I encourage you to follow your dreams – I actually wrote and recorded a song about it – here’s a snippet:

American Mutt

I am an American Mutt

Ever since I can remember, people would ask me what my ethnicity was, and I got tired of listing all the different nationalities in my blood. So, one day I just said, “I’m an American Mutt.” And I liked that answer – and so did they. That’s where I came up with the idea for my American Mutt design – it’s a tribal design of a dog with no specific pedigree, that represents diversity.
