Well, I’m going through a season as we speak. For relief, I turned to my favorite relaxation method: a good glass of red wine and a magazine. Low and behold while flipping through the high-glossy pages, I found a few special words that fell in the right order and caused my season to break for a few moments.
Let me share this with you:
Danielle Brooks, the star, Sofia, in The Color Purple – it’s her interview with Oprah. She was asked for her “Best Words of Wisdom.”
“I’ve heard a lot, but one piece of advice that’s on my heart right now is from Nina Simone: ‘I’ll tell you what freedom is to me – no fear.’ That’s the place I’m trying to get to in my life – as an artist, performer, and as a person.”
No fear. That’s where I’m trying to take my life.
