To my son

To my son, the musician.

To create a work of art, one must create from a place of pure authenticity.

To find the place of pure inner authenticity, one must let go of the outcome and submerge oneself into the process.

Only the process is of utmost importance, everything else will follow naturally.

The artist embraces and allows pain. Pain is outside of your comfort zone, but it's also inside your comfort zone.

Your only choice as an artist is, whichever pain you decide to live with at the very moment.

The experience of an artist block is the result of holding on to fear. And it's not the fear of failure, it's fear of greatness. Art takes courage, get used to the pain.
