failures #2

To show your work, to reveal yourself, is to engage in an exercise of countless humiliations big and small, public and private. As you look out into the audience, no matter how many people like it, love it even, you will always see the one that doesn't - the man with his head in his hands - and that is what stays with you. Even if the impossible happened and EVERYBODY loved you, you would be filled with disgust and self-loathing over the whole thing because you have allowed yourself to want the love of strangers.
