A Public vs Private Life

“It is incredibly difficult to be both public and private all at once.”

So what of the musician, the writer, the artist, the actor, the politician? When “success” means yours is a household name, how do you savor your true identity? How do you manage to put yourself out there – to let your work be known – and maintain a sense that your world is your own? How do you keep from judging your value on others’ perception?

Is it worth the trade off? A necessary consequence of pursuing your passion?
Or does it warp what’s really important in this life?

I would argue that, if handled carelessly, it could easily be both.
