You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.

annieclark.jpg My friend Steven invited me to a concert last night (thank you, Steven!) and I have to say, I preferred the opening act, which was a woman named Annie Clark who calls her band (but it’s just her) St. Vincent. My favorite songs were Jesus Saves, I Spend, and Paris is Burning, and her version of the Beatles song Dig a Pony. I also found a great song by her called The Apocalypse Song, although I’m not sure if I heard it last night. Her website is here.

In other news. There was a great quote on Criminal Minds this week. I love the quotes they pick. Here it is:

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.” Eleanor Roosevelt.

That last bit it so true, alas, and it bears re-stating and boldfacing. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do. I’m afraid of many things so I love quotes about fear.
