I want to be clear about this. If you wrote from experience, you'd get maybe one book, maybe three poems. Writers write from empathy.
The great gift of human beings is that we have the power of empathy, we can all sense a mysterious connection to each other.
If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can't survive.

I believe empathy is the most essential quality of civilization.
Only by examining our personal biases can we truly grow as artists; only by cultivating empathy can we truly grow as people.
