what it means to another

in november last year, i wrote this entry. immediately after i published it, i wrote mr. despain an email:

thank you for creating the exchange. it quite literally took my breath away. (link attached here)

four days later, mr. despain wrote back:

Thanks for writing that wonderful little anecdote and thanks also for sending me the link. It was really touching to read. Though I get a fair bit of fan mail this one ranks up there as one of the best. 

Hope this finds you well,

it is one thing for an idol to reply to fan mail, and a completely other thing when he replies and says he appreciates what you wrote.

i take comfort in the thought that despite all the pride, the arrogance and the condescension of this world, you can find good in the world of art and talented artists.

i eagerly look forward to other art pieces and artists that would inspire me. never underestimate the beauty of creativity and the power of appreciation.
