“But really, as a songwriter, the only thing I do is make jewelry for the inside of people's minds. That's it.” ” - Tom Waits
Without fear, there can be no bravery. I do not back away from fear. I am a musician. Music gave me purpose and meaning. It made me want to learn. It made me want to be able to socialize and communicate. Music found me on a one way road to chaos and failure, showed me an exit and put me on the map to a joyful life. It was the cornerstone of my personality, my survival and can be a gateway to my true Self.
