Expressing yourself with art… whatever your experiences have been, you put them to use. There is a transformative process, a healing process, and by creating a piece of art, you heal yourself, and then you heal others because they recognize themselves in the stories you tell. And that’s the beauty of it. That’s why we go to the theater, because it’s such a transcendental and therapeutic experience. That’s why we go see movies, that’s why we love art in general…. The symbols are there. And we respond to symbol and myth. This is the way we tell stories, this is the way we move forward in life.
