You may have seen the film The Greatest Showman. With its phenomenal music, raucous
dancing, and Hugh Jackman, what’s not to like, right? (Okay, perhaps the fact that it’s
not at all true to P. T. Barnum’s life can give us pause. But as a stand-alone, mostly –
fictional film, it’s pretty rad.)
At one point in the film Jenny Lind, world-famous Swedish opera singer, takes to the
stage to belt out the showstopper “Never Enough.” The song speaks of spotlights and
stars, of towers of gold and the power to hold the whole world enraptured, but the chorus says it all:
It’ll never be enough, never be enough for me. Never, never, never, never, never, for me.
Have you felt this raw, gnawing hunger? This desire for more and more and more?
