Have you been unhappy because you feel your music is not getting notice, or you feel burned out, or wondered if anyone really liked it?
I was feeling a bit down, and then, this morning I received some very favorable and perceptive comments about one of my piano pieces from a pianist who recently won an international competion.

Keep making your music, especially if it causes you to feel good about yourself.
Have a great day there in the beautiful Redwoods Richard.
I appreciate your music!
