      Thanks, Lauren! It’s been quite a journey and definitely exciting! πŸ™‚

        I can just imagine the feeling of accomplishment and to have musical talent as you do is something to be very proud of…I used to sing (when I was young :)) and going professional was my goal and passion. But, I didn’t know how to play piano or guitar and I guess, wasn’t interested at the time. If I had been able, I probably would have pursued that path, rather than changing lanes. However, I love my hubby and kids, so there is the bright side! πŸ™‚

        Sometimes the journey (creative as well as professional) takes a few detours enroute to the ultimate destination!
        David Gilmour of Pink Floyd commented in a 2003 documentary about the making of Dark Side of the Moon that he would liked to have heard the finished music from the listener’s standpoint, to know the experience of hearing it for the first time. The composer/performer already knows every note and phrase that comprises the work plus the many variations on ideas that did or didn’t make it.
        Even so, to hear it altogether definitely brings a feeling of accomplishment and any musical/creative accomplishment supersedes any milestone achieved during my previous career in the corporate IT world. The result is most fulfilling because it begins and ends with much greater personal purpose.
        Having said all that, I agree with you completely! The most significant and fulfilling experience in life is sharing life with those persons who are special to us. πŸ™‚

    This is beautiful George. Love the titles to your songs. I also really connected to your response to iscotthought on creativity/professionalism. I have struggled with making a “successful” fine art career by the standard of monterary gains. However I wholely possess the joy of the creative process, and how I’ve come to know and heal myself via my art. This has become my intepretation of true success.
    I will be checking out your music. πŸ™‚

      Thanks, Walter! No doubt, the art needs to deliver the means to earn a living at some point and getting there can be quite difficult. On the other hand, the struggle can feed personal growth as well as help develop a deeper understanding of one’s creative direction and method. Both the pragmatic and creative variables will definitely challenge one’s sense of purpose and willpower, leading to a better interpretation of success as you stated. In the end you will know just who you are!
