Quote of the day
I will upset someone I love? A serious worry that is not easily exorcised or stared down because you never know how loved ones will respond to your creation. The best you can do is remind yourself that you're a good person with good intentions. You're trying to create unity, not discord. See the curtain call. See the people standing up. Hear the crowd roaring.

- People will laugh at me
- Someone has done it before
- I have nothing to say
- Once executed, the idea will never be as good as it is in my mind
