The “artist side of me” thinks that the paradigms of our social and economic systems are inherently set around capitalizing on things we do to perpetuate our species (like childbearing and child-rearing).
We make industries out of “becoming” and many of us can lose sight that the goal is to actually arrive and “be.”
And as musicians, we all eventually learn that it actually takes many many years after completing a degree program or course to truly master most of the information and materials that were studied and taught.
It also truly almost takes just as long to simply recognize that fact because most people are too busy living day to day to pay attention to such nuances and details.
But, that’s all part of the process of living and reinforces it’s ultimately about lifelong learning.
As successful musicians, artists, and people we ultimately learned to first be of service to others and our community rather than simply using every encounter for shallow selfish purposes.
