*You inspired me to respoind further. I hope its alright...
Additionally...no matter the level of experience..you and I are both...and always will be amateurs. We are all...each of us..just in different spots
on the same level playing field. ie: Music
Ive held 4 careers in my time. One in the security industry, another in the University Hospital system of medicine, another lifetime in music, 11-top
10's in the 1960's-a member of associate producers in music for a major record label-a guitar instructor in the 1970's, an author-published, and a
FEMA/Homeland Security trained 1st Responder in Advanced Disaster Life Support (currently).
I have music on an episode of the Sopranos, 2 John Candy and Steve Martin movies, one with Martin Short....and Ive produced many music videos and even
a pepsi commercial. So let me tell you this.
IT DOESNT MATTER in the scheme of life itself.
We are here today, communicating on a faceless forum, both sharing the common thread of being human. Ive had some incredible losses in life through
bad decisions, management, deaths and plain stupidity. Yet I stay spiritually strong.
Ive leaned we are all the same. I volunteer. I teach, I study. Ive astrally projected successfully for over 40 years now. Ive embraced God and ran
smack dab into the Devil himself too.
**MY POINT. Im here not to gloat, stroke my ego, blow my own horn, or yell "Look at ME" to the mountain tops. Thats why I like the facelessness of us
and a simple screen name. Ive never hid from anyone, not pretended to be someone Im not. For we are all equals. Just at different levels.
I say this here and now because you indicated slightly I am above the "average" musician or whomever. That is not true. Believe me when I tell you we
are only here for a short while...at least this time around...so we should try to do some good for someone...no matter how insignificant it may
So, I thank you for your reply, but please remember this...we are only here for a short time. Make the most of yours...to help others. But all of
us...we are the same.
Peace, Love n LIght...Always
