"I believe that I don’t deserve to win. I’ve discovered many people with drug, alcohol, and mental health problems who think similarly."
Wow. I didn’t know what being vulnerable meant until I read this – leading with your deepest self doubts and exploring all of your most far-off fantasies. Thank you for this beautiful piece.
I’ve also picked up jiu jitsu in the past couple of months and have grown to love how full it feels. It feels like music in the sense that it’s both about a philosophy (jiu jitsu means “gentle art”) and about nonverbal physicality.
Thanks again. Can’t wait to read more.
