There is a Martha Graham quote that has motivated me for the last twenty-plus years. I keep coming back to it, in my art, in my writing, in my leadership roles. Always making tentative gestures towards my own expression of life.
“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it.”
