Opportunities Given

“… Being given this opportunity as one of my people may be the beginning of a certain dimension, that anyone who wants to aspire to be so completely free artistically as I have been … is truly an American act, and it makes me proud to be an American.”

Artistry Doesn’t Have to End in Your 50s

You are who you are until the day you die.”
