Also interesting, I think, is that for me, making money from making music has never been a priority. This has been puzzling to many people I know and frankly somewhat of a mystery for me. I actually love making money and have been quite blessed throughout my life in my ability to do so. And when I have chosen to perform or license my music for fee, I have been able to easily do so. But I suppose for me music has never been a product for me to make and sell. For me it has been a kind of deeply personal magical language that provides me with a sonic means of expression of emotion that I can use to tap into some kind of universal “flow.” And when that flow state comes, for me, well, there is simply nothing better. For me it is something transcendently otherworldly, something sacred, that feels like a spiritual connection to that which is beyond the knowable, to something as indescribably beautiful as nature and existence itself. And so, I suppose on some level I have always felt that what I get from the blessed gift of being able to create music is more than sufficient compensation.
