Dr. Wayne Dyer often says, "Don't die with your music still inside you." The first time I read that, I was profoundly affected. I felt sad and inspired all at once. I worried about what my music was. Have I already played my song? What if my song was out of tune or boring? Should I be playing the same old tune, or was it time to compose a new one? I was inspired by that last thought and decided that it was time to get out paper and pen and set down a new melody that I am still composing to this day. At 5:30 am.
What music is inside you? Classical, rock, jazz, reggae, country? It doesn't matter if you hit all the notes all the time or if you forget the words. Just "lay down that boogie and play that funky music 'til you die."
