My blog post for today. Where does creativity come from, anyway?

Just watched Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould, on Netflix. Great interviews and story on his life. Anyone else seen it?

Yes, and going your own way is the part that takes courage. He clearly didn't enjoy concertizing, but it still must have been tough to give up the offers from around the world. If for no other reason than the disappointment of others.

I liked how concerned he was for his listeners, while at the same time calling the live audience "a force of evil"!

He was clear about how he wanted to spend his time, and I respect that.

My wife and I are planning a trip to Paris for 9 nights in June! (First time for me, second time for her. ) I'm reading this book about the city. It's got lots of entertaining stories and history... a good read if you want more than just the basics that a travel book might give you. Just finished reading about the métro and the flooding of 1910.

Vox Humana and Victoria Children's Choir did a phenomenal job singing this new arrangement of O Canada yesterday. Have a listen!

Yeah sometimes the painful ones are the best in the long run. But I think it mainly depends on the quality of relationship you have with the person giving the advice.
