I have written before about gratitude, being happy for the opportunities you have in the business. That is all still true.
I think everyone needs to remember that we are LUCKY to be musicians, LUCKY to have people who want to hear from us, and fortunate to have a life filled with bringing people some degree of joy through the arts
I also like to be busy... Some say too busy. However I also find it very important to stop and reflect a little.... Look for patterns, places I can do better, and things I can point to and be proud of. Get moving, and keep moving, be leave a little time ( a few hours, or a day) to reflect and meditate on what you have done, and what is coming up.....
Speak of - the next few weeks take me to the pit of the Kennedy center, the stage of the atlas performing arts center, a shared recital with chad burrow in Virginia and Michigan, a master class at nyu and finally to the music for all national festival in Indianapolis. Whew, hold on tight
