Let this be an archive. To grow is the idea, and perhaps one day I will come back to this post, and others will, and it will evoke the impression of something at its inception. As a musician the goal is to be heard. As a student, the goal is to learn. So within this blog are contained two motivations, each linked to the other.
But it goes much further than that, because as a musician it is imperative to also have selfless motivations. Community comes to mind. I hope to become part of the San Francisco music community, to add to it, to influence and be influenced by it, to feel welcome in it. In my opinion, there are few greater things in life than when people are brought together through music. Let us all continue to do so, as our ancestors have, and their ancestors, and so on.
