From an artist’s perspective:

“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time. This expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it.

It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open…”

Martha Graham

    As an artist, I need to be reminded to keep the channel open. It is not always easy. Thank you so very much for this post!

    It sounds like it is in place to help protect the bank customer, when in reality it may actually hurt
    them more than it helps. This $800 lent out will then become a deposit
    in another bank. It is the investment banks that address concerns on mergers of companies or acquisition of new properties.
