First, I sometimes hold back from giving my absolute all to what I do. Because of being judged. What might people think? About what I look like or sound like. Or what I am doing. What might they read into it?
Is this holding me and other people back from creating the most timelessly beautiful things I can?
Yes. I need to work on this.
Second, I don’t want to die. But I know I will. I don’t know how to express my fear and concern about this.

This song, by Antony and The Johnsons is timelessly beautiful. And expresses better than anything I’ve ever said, how I feel about dying. It addresses both of my aforementioned issues, in one.

Oh I’m scared of the middle place
Between light and nowhere
I don’t want to be the one
Left in there, left in there
