Can pianists be divas?

. . . as long as you think of divas as being

well, a pianist cannot be a diva.

But, as usual, I challenge you
to alter your perception
of the word diva.

This sad caricature is a distortion
of the true meaning
of divine --

The divine - the diva - in each of us 
is found
when we relax and be the thing we are
when our talents explode
because we let them,
we naturally flower.
When we lose our lesser selves
to our greater selves,
then we are divas. 

here is another diva:

and another:

and another:

Need I go on?

Then why not this:

I dare you:

be a diva
