Twyla

I’ll say this once: acquire this book. It’s difficult to select a short & coherent portion to excerpt for our purposes here, but this’ll suffice:

“When I walk into the white room I am alone, but I am alone with my:

body

ambition

ideas

passions

needs

memories

goals

prejudices

distractions

fears.

The last two—distractions and fears—are the dangerous ones… Let me tell you my five big fears:

  1. People will laugh at me.
  2. Someone has done it before.
  3. I have nothing to say.
  4. I will upset someone I love.
  5. Once, executed, the idea will never be as good as it is in my mind.”
