You are the first for a few reasons.
You understand my current state as an ARTIST better than anyone.
I have gained a lot of strength, purpose, and validation.
I think knowing that I'm not the only person who feels this way has helped me to be much more honest with myself.
Thank you for pushing me to be productive.
The work must be the first priority, even if it's bad work.
The act of writing an actual letter...allows me to be more intimate; I can say things I would never verbalize, because I would feel too exposed and silly.
I'm so happy we shared that closet!
