With all our self criticism it’s hard to realize how our music making can impact another person. We play for people and, of course, it isn’t our best.
But the people enjoy it. Some are seriously touched by our musical contribution, having inklings of “I wish I could do that…” and “You have a great gift…”
It’s those moments of connection we strive for. It’s those moments of connection that make music worth it.
We don’t have to be perfect. We have to connect.
