not your (my) typical blog post

A person much wiser than I once said to me:

“Artists do not do what they do because they want to. They do it because they have to. They cannot do anything else. If you can do anything else and be happy doing it, do that. Play for your children. You will be happy. Musicians are only happy when they are making music.”

I am finally beginning to understand this. But more importantly, I now believe it.
