Pacey Performance Podcast #94 – Damian Hughes

“Follow your heart but take your head along with you” – Nelson Mandela
“If you can’t explain what you’re doing to a 6-year-old, you probably don’t understand it yourself” – Albert Einstein
“If history was taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten” – Rudyard Kipling
