about

Many writers work extremely hard—often holding down a full time job (sometimes to put bread on the table, other times to have health insurance) and then effectively working another full time job with the amount of time they write. As an avid reader, I wanted to sympathize, and encourage.

lyrics

Art Feeds Life
lyrics and melody by Catherine Faber, 2011

Art feeds life and life feeds art
And art feeds life, but you know you need
Guts and brains to follow your heart
Into the life you dared to start
And the dreams that sometimes make you bleed.

So you pay the price assessed
Burn bright, beating back dark of death
Still you feel in your secret chest
There are times that you wish for rest
More than water or food or breath.

You're glad you made the crossroad deal.
You swore to go to any length,
And all your friends who wish you weal,
Straighten spines of silver and steel;
Tap their spirits to will you strength

Strongly though you wish to stay,
The story calls you down the road;
You know you can't go on this way.
Still you think for one more day,
If you stand up straight you can bear the load.

Art feeds life and life feeds art
And art feeds life, but you know you need
Guts and brains to follow your heart
Into the life you dared to start
And the dreams that sometimes make you,
they sometimes make you bleed.
