62. The healing, true, but even more...

Artistic expression often reminds the listener, viewer, or reader that he or she is not alone.

When the artist has experienced extreme pain or joy, something so strong that it can't help but direct the artist's creative path; and when the resulting message has been so carefully delivered that the audience can't help but perceive it as genuine, it can send a feeling that reaches to the core of our experience as humans. The feeling is a reminder that we are not alone, that others experience the same intense levels of pain and joy that we experience.

Keeping that in mind, the very first time I watched your video, it seemed like it was being sung with the energy of someone who had already won the contest. That alone gave the song a sense of validity for me. ("This is someone who knows what she's talking about, so I should pay attention." The song became a kind of warning to me that procrastination is artistic sin, a reminder that I need to get serious about a project of my own - something I had been putting about five minutes a day into when I could afford to spend at least an hour or two each day on it.
