performing artists are important to our civilization

I think people will say at my funeral that I spent my life advocating for performing artists and pointing out how important we are to our civilization. They will mention how I dedicated my life toward bringing out the best in young performers, and how I was a visionary. I also think they will say I loved animals, had the heart and imagination of a five-year-old but was always ready to give a “Joy talk” on the human condition.
