I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us -- don't tell!
They'd banish -- you know!
How dreary to be somebody!
How public like a frog
To tell one's name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!
-- Emily Dickenson
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!
I posted this little Emily Dickenson poem that had a profound impact on me in the 4th grade. I never forgot the expression "public like a frog."
I'm a tortured Gemini. On the one hand I need a certain amount of fame to continue doing what I love - performing & singing.
On the other hand, off stage I DO NOT crave fame. Anonimity is good.
