Old Musicians

Actors and musicians when they are older and less able are still better than they ever were. They no longer have to prove their greatness. They see the big picture and serve the material. All the effort and concern for themselves goes to understanding the material and takes it beyond any average actor.

Life is like this too. You don't control the world. You are not the sole author of anything. Its all bits and pieces out there, steered and examined, pushed into something greater than what was their before. Those that put their name on and own all that they touch miss something. They never look out and see the world. They only look in and see what the world sees of them. A small vision that leads to a small person. Better to look at the world with no concern for vanity, and find something greater than oneself and be a part of it.
