Dear Zach,

Why choose? Do both! Be both! Stop being scared of your light, of your brilliance. You don’t actually need my permission to do this, but I’m granting it to you anyway: go forth & shine! Write & act, sing & dance — be the person you were destined to be, live your life!

I cannot wait to see you blossom, let yourself bloom, why not? Who is stopping you but you? You have so much to give! Shine on! Gods know we need more light in the world!
