This old woman inspires me. If she can play slide guitar with a light bulb on a street corner in front of a dumpster in Belarus, I have no legitimate excuses for not exercising my talents.
Oh, like everyone else, I have reasons for why I haven't done more with my talents. Why I haven't written and recorded more songs. Why I haven't written that book. Why I haven't created that film score. The list goes on. The truth is my lack of creative productivity is due more to my own lack of discipline than to circumstances. Now, I'm off to practice!
