We leave our mark by taking -- as if
it were a baton -- from our predecissors
& then making it wholly our own.
~ MARTHA GRAHAM
The ownership thing. Thinking about this a lot lately. How it works. Why it works. & when it works, how undeniable it is. How utterly irresistible. The word has positive & negative connotations. But for an actor owning the role = mastery / value / respect. The powerful feeling of ownership = the end of worrying & seeking & the onset of the relaxation & confidence of just being.
