I was chatting with my daughter about music and all the wonderful opportunities being a musician has gifted me in my life... and I had an epiphany.
We can work our arses off making money,getting a bigger house and faster car, more clothes. We can buy shit if we make money but no amount of money can buy the feeling you get when you are with a bunch of friends sharing and making music. Spending days with no agenda other than to be happy interweaving ideas and melodies, sharing wholesome food and bottles of red wine, passing round joints, tummies hurting with laughter.... This is LIFE, this is what we should aspire for! We should aspire for the inhibition to dance wildly and free, we should aspire for a life where being connected and happy is more important than having a status and a healthy bank account.
I’m happy to say I feel rich, rich with experiences that have gifted me moments of pure bliss and these experiences are what I will continue to strive for and also what I hope my children become rich with in their lives.
