Feeding the soul

Art and love needs to be great. We don't want average art, or average love. But everything else though seems to be ok with average. I eat average pizza, for example. I most often wear average clothes. An average burger is devoured at least once a week. As long as it does not kill me I am ok. Yes, we do lots of things that are average. And we consume lots of average stuff.

Feeding the soul and feeding the body are very different things. When it comes to feeding the soul, then it can't be average. If we feed the soul with average stuff, then we turn into zombies ...

Story telling is an art form, and the stories we remember are the inspired ones. Average stories are not memorable. They don't feed the soul.
