Need a gift for a gifted musician?
I'd say I'm folklore. I live to dream and enjoy playing music that makes people forget whatever it is they don't want to remember. With such an abstract subject like music I'd say it's all about the escapism you feel when you listen to it. All the great singers have that quality. They don't just create sound, they remove it too. They draw it straight out of the room and really keep you in this kind of state where you're just listening. Some people I can be listening too and think "wow this person is really good" but they're never really good, they just sound good. But The singer's who are great, well can make you think of nothing because you don't want to think of anything. It's just like meditating, I guess. I can't really meditate that well though. I know why, It's because I dwell too much. I try not to dwell too much, but I dwell a lot for someone my age and most of the time when I'm doing it I'm also wishing that I'd just stop dwelling and do something, anything. I can't help it though. Like when you miss a person or a situation. They're all you think about because you're trying so hard not to miss them and you just want to move on. I'm not depressed or anything I just enjoy analysing things and understanding how they work. I play a few instruments and I've worked a lot of boring old jobs to keep me going, so I guess I don't really "live to dream" but perhaps only "dream to live." I think dreams are like messages and sometimes you just have to hear them whether they're good or bad. Your life can be going great and then you have this one bad dream and suddenly you start thinking about everything. You wonder if you take it all for granted or how long are things gonna be good for? It's all nonsense though.
