Why bringing a little discipline to your alone time is important, plus my top 10 solitude-enriching activities.
In my next life I think I’ll be coming back as a jazz violist (and cartoonist, of course!) I suppose I could dedicate myself to learning how to improvise on the viola in THIS lifetime; truth be told, by the time I’m finished with my music gigs for the day, I tend to want to “shelve the axe” and get on to other things (like creating silly illustrations and cartoons.) So to feed my love for jazz, I often end up resorting to just listening to it. I’m a big fan of Stéphane Grappelli and Mark O’Connor and also recently came across this Gypsy Jazz Viola video that blew me away… How about you? Do you like jazz? Any artists or recordings I should check out? I’d love to expand my music library…
