Overheard at the Lucille’s bar last night:

“I don’t know what it is. I’m starting to notice that it’s difficult to keep friends. It’s like, there’s so much in my head, people can’t handle it.”

“I’m going through the same thing. It’s not you. It’s them.”

“They think I’m weird. They tell me to get a life.”

“I get that too. Or my personal favorite line: ‘You have too much time on your hands.’ As if there is such a thing.”

“My brain’s starting to burn bridges in my personal relationships. I’m alienating myself. It’s out of control. They don’t get it. The whimsical nature of misinterpretation.”

“Don’t expect ’em to get it. Just be patient. Keep going. Find your outlets. Jam it out in your own way. Don’t deprive yourself of that. For anybody. Or it’ll kill you.”

“That’s what I’m trying to do.

“You and I should also probably stop cc-ing all our friends every time we txt each other. Sneak peaks are fine, but keep ’em to a minimum. Otherwise everybody’s gonna leave, and we’ll have nobody to talk to but us.”

“Which would be pretty cool. Hey, you want a shot of Jack?”

    “There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and 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 be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. 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. No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.”

    Martha Graham
