I had the pleasure of attending last night’s opening of Philip Glass’s Satyagraha at the @laopera and I cant stop thinking about it. The entire piece was stunning on so many levels and I am deeply inspired (highly recommend grabbing tickets if you are able.) I feel like I keep having this conversation with young artists I work with about the state of their industry. survival jobs, and how frustrating it can be to juggle it all while pursuing their art as a career. Philip Glass was 41 when he was commissioned to create Satyagraha and it was the piece the enabled him to quit his side jobs. So if you are hustling, keep at it. Do what you need to do but keep creating what comes from your deepest place, the world will be better for it. #satyagraha #lao33
