For those of you fans who also happen to be my musician friends, I know you understand the stress of preparing for an audition. And I know you’ll sympathize and be able to relate as I sit here scratching my head tonight after not having advanced in the audition I took today. It’s one thing to not advance after feeling like you didn’t play well…entirely another when you know you pretty much did your best (hence the head scratching!) Fortunately, I do have a very good network of supportive friends and family, and my imaginary friends (see below) are calling as well.
And, as I begin to pick up the pieces and get back to my creative endeavors, I’m inspired to share this piece of wisdom…
“There is no innovation and creativity without failure. Period.”
