Re: [New Release] - Premonition Factory- 59 airplanes waiting for New York

Hi Sjaak,

I was just talking to someone about this today.

A prophet is not without honor, except in his hometown and among his
relatives and in his own household.

Except for one of my students who is around seven yrs old.
All of my responses to my blog have been from foreigners.

It's a strange phenomena.
I'm guessing it has something to do with how we value things.
If something is easily accessible then we tend to devalue it.

Another example is a friend of mine who is an incredible guitar player was
doing a couple of gigs with me for a month at this resaturant and really
tearing it up, some of the best I ever heard him play.

The maitre d was hearing him play for about a month but really didn't take
any notice of him.

Then one day he had a gig at a fairly large event. His tone was terrible
and he told me himself he was struggling.

Sure enough at the next gig the maitre d told us he never realised what an
incredible guitar player he was until he saw him up on that stage, with a
lot of lights and some well known artist. i.e. not very accessible at that
point in time.

Just goes to show.

Keep pressing on.
