At the end of the day, we are just actors, poets, musicians, artists…Dreamers…And our responsibility, our duty is to try to make this world a better place through the arts and music. We all want to change the world! Yes we do. All of us…What we really can do is create, inspire others, send positive messages, dream, help each other and make those hearts that don’t have the opportunity to be heard dream. Dream about a better life, dream about what they are capable of by following their hearts without fear and doubt, dream about true love. Because love is what makes us human. Anything opposite to it will make us weak and frightened and become the worst expression of ourselves.
I know what it is to be called a loser idealist, a not down to earth person, a stupid and weird girl. I’ve been victim of certain grade of bullying when I was in high school and for a long time I believed them…Sad, right? But you know what? One day I said, ok I’ll figure things out by myself and see with my own eyes what this is about, what does this life have to offer and what can I do with it. And the most important thing what I will be standing for. So I left. It took me years while I traveled the world alone, very young and inexperienced. But one thing I knew, unconsciously, I knew what kind of person I didn’t want to be in the future. The future is now and what I can say now is that I am so looking forward to see how much more I will grow and evolve as a person, artist and dreamer and I hope that the rest of us be strong enough to see it for themselves and fight for what’s right and for what’s wrong.
The human race…What an amazing group of people in the Universe we could be…What’s waiting for us? I don’t know…What I know in the deepest part of my heart is that there’s a very high and bright expression of ourselves somewhere and we must climb all together, like birds on the wire, sharing the oxygen and supporting those who can’t go faster and feel vertigo. So, let’s unite, love each other, explore and keep creating.
Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free
–Leonard Cohen (1934-2016)
