Here I am. I have a philosophy. It is from Bill and Ted. "Be excellent to each other." For a stoner flick, that is a remarkably succinct way of wrapping up a life style. It's as good as some, and better than many, and it works out.
My life is a few things: music, teaching music, writing music, writing about music... I guess there's maybe a trend going on here. I actually play cello. Not for any symphony, or anything. I just prefer to do my own thing.
That said, I have my ambitions. I want to get a novel published. I'd like to see a symphony or a famous chamber group play my music. See some of my students go to music school. You know. Normal stuff.
