I am a privileged person. I am selective too. My entire life I have surrounded myself with people who I respect. Many of them have some things in common: a deep sense of individualism, talent, creativity and a solid-gold spirit. And although I have always appreciated that on some level, it wasn’t until this year that I realized how special that was.
It hit me over the head when I began to seriously think about putting out a musical project of mine. I'm a damn talent magnet. As I invited several people to contribute parts to my songs it became very apparent that my life has been an amazing journey of being next to amazing talent. And in being there I have come to know and understand the way creative people think, create, collaborate and communicate. It is fascinating and wonderful when people make something good together. It is the ultimate celebration of life.
My tribe. My crowd of inspiring people touched by creativity and energy, I crown you and bonk you on the head with my drum stick. You don't know it but you've made a world of difference in my life.
So to all of you kookie creative-types: thank you for the gifts you have. Keep doing stuff. Keep creating. You make life rich, loud and exciting.
