Make Your Soul Grow

The arts are not a way of making a living.  They are a very human way of making life more bearable.  Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven's sake.  Sing in the shower.  Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can.  You will get an enormous reward.  You will have created something.

Kurt Vonnegut 'A Man Without a Country'.

I love this. So much. I love to dance to the radio and my blog-job has really helped me get through my boring, life-suffocating, soul-destroying day job.

So true.
