Ouch. This. This right here. From these people right here: http://atourofsorts.com/
“It’s difficult to play for people you know. Or so I’ve been told. There’s a freedom in sharing with strangers. It’s easier for me to post a story on the Internet than it is to have my dearest friends read my unprotected heart.
But it teaches us to be vulnerable. What are our stories if they aren’t first shared with those closest to us? Your words, your music, your creativity … they might touch the world. But what if they healed your mother’s heart? What if they brought hope to your friends and peace to your sister’s soul? What if they spoke life to the very people that you wrote them with? What if art is meant for more than entertainment? What if it is meant for community?”
