In nature we dont start competing until we have a chance at winning. Its different with art though, we start making art even when we don't have the teqhniques that some institutions and schools of thought say are necessary to make it good.

I have heard mathematicians talk about mathematics in terms of inventing v.s. discovering math equations. Then I heard a computer scientist describe music the same way. Is my attitude toward music one of 'I invented this,' or 'I made this?' Or is it 'This existed and I just discovered that it was there?'
You don't like the world? Change your thoughts about the world.
Have been living for a couple weeks without internet connection. I put the computer away and have really been enjoying being disconnected. As I type now its on my friends computer. However the music release is still set for Nov 5th. Excited to share. A nice homeless man told me today "you can learn from anyone."
A lot of you have heard of Maslow's Pyramid, explaining the basic human necessities. I revisited it the other day and was surprised to see that at the top was 'self-actualization,' ( full filling your unique potential. ) Whatever that may be, and of course your potential can change and evolve, it doesn't have to stay the same, in years it could be something that you didn't even consider. So I am considering that.....maybe years down the road, music wont be my main means of expression, maybe It will be something else.... staying open to that.
How does an experience move you to create? Artists/musicians/creators in this way are primary sources; they are direct contact. First hand experience (primary source) converts into art (secondary source) and then the sharing. From the ethereal to the real and tangible and audible. From the mystic to the appreciable. There is an experience out there today waiting for a primary source to appreciate it.
Staying busy makes the time fly. Staying focused has been hard for me recently, so I started reading 'Eat That Frog' by Brian Tracy. Its been eye opening on increasing my productivity. Here is a link to a pdf with a basic outline of the book. http://www.ncsrc.net/sites/default/files/Eat%20That%20Frog.pdf
I think I'm getting back on track though. Sometimes seasons changing does this to a human. Fall can make me a little lethargic. Needed to share this. It's the October 5th acoustic version of Sweet Medicine. Hope you enjoy, hope your doing good things.
