HiPPiE WiTCH #520 : Exploring Identity & Creative Expression with poet Joanna Valente
The artist's life demands courage.
If you're doing it right (by my estimation), you're essentially sharing the secret parts of yourself with the whole world.
The hope is that others will find resonance with your perspective.
