“If you go to your porch, look up at the sky and jump to the stars, you will just land in the mud” – Russian proverb
Often the stairs are forgotten. The stairs must be constructed. As a young actor, I had no idea of the amount of mastery needed in the craft. That’s why, now, I wish to stress that stairs are needed. This is our technique as artists and no matter how creative we feel ourselves to be, we have no channel for our creative force without technique. Technique means craftsmanship, a technical knowledge of our craft. The stronger your creativity is, the stronger your craft must be, in order to arrive at the needed equilibrium which will let your resources flow fully. If we lack this ground level, we surely land in the mud.
