I love this. I think because I view it as representative of potential, hope, and the achievement of a dream. I picture an individual who has worked their whole life to perfect their craft, whether a musician, a dancer, a performance artist, an actress or actor, and the empty seats represent the hopeful expectancy of the crowd; a moment for the perfected craftsman or craftswoman to showcase their talent, their effort, and their passion for what they love to do.
Here's your moment: shine.
On Oprah's OWN Network, Diane Sawyer was showcased on an episode of "Master Class" in which she attributed her success as a journalist to curiosity: having an interest in subjects to the extent of discovering the truth. She states: "I heard the story about the father of a physicist who, when his son was a child and would come home from school, did not ask, "what did you learn today?" but instead asked "did you ask any great questions?" The emphasis is placed on the child's curiosity and not on the child's ability to repeat an adult's opinion or response."
