just another day

I play an obscure instrument. I also play less obscure instruments. Music education major. Jersey Surf 2010-2012, 2014. I like band, and music in general. Also cats.

Musicians are some of the most driven, courageous people on the face of the earth. They deal with more day-to-day rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime … . With every note, they stretch themselves, emotionally and physically, risking criticism and judgment. Why? Because musicians are willing to give their entire lives to a moment - to that melody, that lyric, that chord, or that interpretation that will stir the audience’s soul. Musicians are beings who have tasted life’s nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched another’s heart. In that instant, they were as close to magic, God, and perfection as anyone could ever be. And in their own hearts, they know that to dedicate oneself to that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes.
— David Allert, LA Walker Times
