My professor told me about a conversation he had with John Hench, VP of Disney and the main guy who ran Disney Parks

He said something along the lines of this: Do you know why people love Disneyland? It is because there they get an affirmation of life. They get a sense they are alive there, witnessing how beautiful and wonderful life can be. 

If I can give people this sense of affirmation every day for the rest of my life through my work I could die happy. 

I forget that this art is magic to people, that animation is boundless on its effect on audiences, that it’s something that stays with them for the rest of their lives. When I saw the outreach kids fawn over Tom Sito’s Beauty and the Beast drawings, looking like they were going to cry, that hit me hard. These drawings MEAN a lot to people, these characters, these personalities, exemplify this moment in their lifetime that was precious to them. 

I am so lucky to get to do what I get to do, and so lucky to have figured that out so early in my life.

And so it goes

All i expect from you
Is to leave me
With the sense of loose ends
Left untied
And a mouthful of words
Left unsaid
And a room of sunlight
Of chipping paint

Off-white loss
Is much worse when
There are too many shadows
To count
