For me music is a centering device putting me in touch with myself and in 
tune with a larger Universal flow or Tao.  Music is a Practice, a tool to 
communicate.  My highest moments in this life have been sharing that 
experience with my fellow earthlings.  Pay has come once in awhile but 
not my main focus.  Pay would be great but until that ship comes in I'll 
settle for being in the flow and keeping that creative mystery alive.  Om 
and Out...Papa Dave
