Performing. You know when it’s at its best? When the performer is confident, and fully engaged. I know this should be obvious, but it’s something I have to remind myself often.

Know what it is that you’re trying to accomplish, and then practice, practice, practice… And that will allow you to be fully engaged in the moment, because what is life but a series of moments, and if the moments you spend on stage can’t be transcendent, then why are you doing what you’re doing?
