“I think most of the people involved in any art always secretly wonder whether they are really there because they’re good – or because they’re lucky.” Katharine Hepburn, photo by Florence Vandamm

  1. Same with musicians. You wouldn’t believe how many great singers and songwriters are waiting tables in Nashville, hoping to be “discovered” at the songwriters’ nights. There are just too many talents and not enough slots “at the top”. I suspect it’s that way with every art, really. The ones you hear about all the time are the lucky ones, but there are scores of talented people who go unsung.

    • Luck and perseverance…
      “You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”
      Maya Angelou
