GUEST,TJ Is the music enough? (60* d) RE: Is the music enough? 23 Jun 08

Definition of work: "Anything you are doing when you would rather be doing something else."

If you love music, art or theater enough to be in the creative end, it is hard to give full attention to making a living at something unrelated. Yet, that is what many are compelled to do in order to pay the rent, or for groceries, doctors, school for the kids, etc. I was once on the horns of that dilemma, and never entirely resolved it until I retired. My son has had a band for nearly ten years, playing fairly regularly, but works full time to support his "music habit." Few are fortunate enough, talented enough and persistent enough to make a living with music, without some compromises along the way.

If you are a "starving artist," may God bless you and maybe help with the rent...
