Could not do this just this justice if I tried and yet I Must TRY!
This energy, this essence of us requires an exercising, a daily working. Music is evidence that we are far more than facts and figures. Anyone can sing - and not everyone needs a stage. Anyone can repeat words have sang and feel the expression the original writer intended. We are all one when it comes to expressing what is in us. We are all artists and craftsmen and brilliant dancers. But why aren’t we doing this? Why is our world in chaos?
Every round goes higher and higher…every day, every second is an opportunity to do “better.” But who judges, who measures what qualifies as better? You do. But why does my effort to do better producing “better?” It’s not because you haven’t tried and it isn’t simply because “resistance” exists within and without. Sit with any person who has taken the title of musician, dancer or visual artist and you will find they either practice (I practice in my head far more than I do in actual effort) insane amounts of time or they constantly make mistakes…matter of fact, the two go hand-in-hand. The effort is a lesson and in every effort, there exists the opportunity for improvement.
Masterpieces are snippets of time; they capture - some say, an artist’s best effort. I say it is a long line of effort, captured in a snippet. A dance, a castle or cathedral is only a moment. We are constantly in the process of creating and shifting and building and tearing down to make something new.
