The Artist's Conundrum: The Value of Your Work

The title says “The Artist’s Conundrum”, but there are definitely other fields that could probably identify with the topic. Teachers, nurses, administrative assistants, restaurant servers, and minimum wage workers (off the top of my head) have all had the value of their work questioned and dismissed. I am ashamed to admit that I once caught myself uttering discouraging words about – of all people – the person preparing my dinner. (We all have brief moments of idiocy.) The fact is that regardless of “status” in an organization, all of these roles are indeed important. Because I am writing this from my personal experience, I am going to discuss it from the standpoint of a musician.

So, I'm relaunching my blog and pulling it onto my website!

"So, if you have been following any of my various social media accounts, you have probably noticed something dangling from my face that isn’t on my main website. (If not, there’s a picture reference either to the left or directly above this post.) Okay… that “something” is actually an extraterrestrial alien creature with hundreds of thousands of probosces burrowing subcutaneously into my skull. The doctors have assured me that despite what friends and family believe, the creature is in fact benign and poses no danger whatsoever of attaching to my nervous system and taking control of my higher cerebral functions."

The final piece from my recital on May 2, 2015. Well... Most of it, anyway.

And now Google Voice is repeatedly sending me email notifications for the same text. I'm up to 72 times.

File a bug through the Hangouts app. It's also possible it's a problem from the sender, not with Google Voice.

Good morning,  I never doubted I would see you on the other side.  My joy is unspeakable this morning, but, type-able I guess.  Proud of you my friend
