There are people out there who not only do stuff, they do stuff with a beautiful spirit. I'm presently ensuring that I hang out with these people. I'm enjoying this shared pursuit of virtue and beauty, it is making me happy. Who'd have thought it?
The only time these people mention money is when they laugh about having none. They make plans, fulfill them when the time is right, not according to a timetable. Stuff gets done when the time is right, without haste, therefore stuff gets done well. Feeling, is as important as technique, technique is respected and worked at.
The surprising thing is that these ventures are succeeding, growing, without ever feeling like work. I'm so pleased. This jaded old rock dog is feeling refreshed by the process. I've done the hard yards as a pro, there is a place for all that, coming back to playing music purely for the spirit of it is like a new musical life, a reincarnation. Each new day feels like a new day, as it should.
Tomorrow I will continue in this pursuit of pure music and pure people. It is working for me. Together we are creating beautiful things, music, friendships and to my surprise everything else is falling into place. Who'd have thought it possible?
