“A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself.” ~ Abraham Maslow
With my new job and extended commute, I am practicing less. I need to get my head together and get to that happy place where work, play, and family are in all in that happy place. It wouldn’t be so stressful if I wasn’t so hard on myself. I want to do so much more than I am right now, but I feel like I’m just eekin’ by.
No worries though, this feeling seems to hit me every 20 years or so. It it me when I was transitioning from college to the military. It came back again when 20 years later I was transitioning to work at Microsoft. And now twenty years later, I’m at it again with Amazon.
Fortunately I am surrounded by great family, friends and musicians. This too will pass. So enjoy the music.
