I Forget that I'm Surrounded by Geniuses, Poets and Artists

In an Improv class this week, a teacher quoted this line from DC:

If we treat each other as if we are geniuses, poets and artists, we have a better chance of becoming that on stage.
— Del Close

it really resonated with me.

And then I had a kick-ass improv class. 

Improv is a pretty amazing way to view the world. You inhabit a character and see how the world responds to it and as you do it –  you sometimes get to see the character that you put out there when you aren’t on stage.

It’s easy to forget that everyone is capable of amazing things. Sometimes a quote from a poet is a good reminder.
