So You Want to Be a Musician? Here’s some wisdom (+ a funny musician cartoon) from the trenches.
Many things to contemplate,
And several chores to delegate.
If I’m gonna go with the flow,
I think I’ll need a cup of joe.
Why sketching has helped me to face my anxiety and how it might help you, too!
If you want to feel truly blessed
You’ll need more than just beauty rest,
You can focus on the here and now,
Or dream up several words to rhyme with cow.
Little did you know…
One way I stay focused during the long pauses at Wicked…
She was lost in thoughts,
Clearly tied up in knots.
Perhaps she had the blues,
(Or didn’t like her shoes.)
His eyes are downcast,
With brows at half mast.
A life in music is a gift indeed,
Though much is required in order to succeed.
Focus, determination and passion are best,
A sprinkling of luck will take care of the rest.
I tired of sketching those chained to their phones
As I traveled the subways through myriad zones.
So I dreamed up this stooped-over, cute little guy
But, as you can see, he is just a bit shy.
