Your hands are shaking and heart is pounding but you continue to play.
Your mind goes blank but you keep the steady pulse.
You make a mistake but you don't apologize.
You wish the piece would end right now but you remember the next episode and seamlessly begin with what you know.
Before you know it, the end approaches, you stumble but you finish on the right key.
You smile. You bow. You succeed.
That's the attitude.
Vulnerable and fearless at the same time.
