Notable Quotable: Sherrie Maricle on practicing

"In between all of the work is the time that you spend practicing, which is also not a paid thing. But you have to practice enough to be good enough so when you do get a call, you'll get called again... I don't think a lot of people really understand how much musicians and writers and dancers and other artists practice, practice and practice--alone, in a room--just to be good enough to come out." -- Sherrie Maricle
