Your uniqueness

“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium. It will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how valuable it is, nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.
You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer, divine satisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive.”

Martha Graham to Agnes de Mille

I've been enjoying your blog for the past week or two when I discovered it. You've got some good ideas. I really need to put myself on a timer for the computer as well. (we don't have a TV, so that isn't a problem in this house)
