Raising Small Souls presents The Animal School, a short video parable about how different people are good at different things. I bet this will resonate with a lot of artists out there. At various times during my education, I fluctuated between excelling academically and coming dangerously close to flunking out all together. Looking back, I realize that the difference between my two states of achievement was whether or not I decided to be a part of the system. It has become valuable to me to understand that participating in the system (or status quo, or common agenda) is optional. The greatest power I have is the power to say yes ...or no. I'm glad I learned that lesson early.
