This weekend, I had the pleasure of attending Riot Fest for the third year in a row, and I was able to catch yet another energetic performance by an artist that I greatly admire, Andrew WK.
Mr. WK's music preaches positivity, and he himself exudes it. Not only is the man a brilliant musician, he's a gifted writer as well, and his essays encourage others to follow their dreams. Andrew WK contributes to a weekly advice column for the Village Voice, and I often find comfort in his uplifting words.
Here is a quote of his that I simply cherish:
“Achieving the dream isn't even as important as living the dream. And all it takes to live the dream is to live each day with as much untiring and unflinching excitement as you can. Do what you love. Pursue what you love. And when you get discouraged, stand back up and dive back in.”
The entire article is here.
Andrew WK believes that life is a party. Live it to the fullest, and enjoy the pursuit of every dream.
Cheers to you, Andrew WK.
Some thoughts on art, life, and theatre. Stay positive.
