Don’t wait. Just don’t do that to yourself! It’s not often that I get very pointed and direct, but today I will.
For most of my life, which has not been a very short period, I have teetered on the edge of my call to art, specifically in music – composition and recording.
I have spent nearly 2 decades in the tech world and more than 2 decades in parish and school music. Wonderful work and, I hope, worthy work. I have been very personally touched by hundreds if not thousands of persons, young and old, and I hope that I have also left a positive memory somehow with them.
I will always cherish these meaningful times and those many faces and stories!
But the dream of writing and recording was persistent, and just under 2 years ago I decided that it was time to definitively see to this. So, I radically altered my life – my home, my work, my time schedule, and for the last several months, Roses in the Alley Media.
Of course, life sets in once again. Things get in the way, if you let them. You still have to earn a reasonable living even late in life, and the dream still slips back if you’re not careful. It’s difficult (but not impossible) to make a living with art.
RitA is very much about this effort. We want to help you to do your art now rather than later.
Our next effort will be to introduce Profiles, a look at you and your art. If you want to be a part of this new adventure, please let us know and we will send you a link to join our Profiles email group right away!
If you need the inspiration to take that step, watch this PHENOMENAL speech by Peter Dinklage at Bennington Collage:
At some point in each of our lives, we simply cannot wait. We must take action. Maybe this time for you is now or very soon. We hope to hear from you!
And (on a selfish note) if after all these years, you have an ongoing interest in our art (music and film scripts), please like and share this post with your friends and family. This will personally encourage us, as we develop Roses in the Alley Media as a platform of encouragement for other artists.
Seize the moment!
