"Whatever You Are Feeling Is Fine"

The above quote is from a review of Taylor Mac's new show on the history of popular music in America.  Taylor Mac is unequivocally brilliant.

I would say that this sentiment -- including every response as appropriate and welcome -- should be up in neon lights at the front of every concert room large and small, and in every art museum, large and small, and perhaps also on the cover of every work of fiction or poetry.

We have too much steeped in appropriate-ness as if there were such a thing for us constantly changing creatures in a constantly changing world.
