Why is this important? If music is for you, as it is for me, a driving force for creativity, inspiration and ideas then by diving headfirst into a deep range of sounds I allow myself to "travel" to an indescribable amount of places. Maybe for you it's not music. Maybe its flipping through a magazine, or looking at art, or eating different foods. Whatever it is, variety is the spice of life and by broadening our range of inspirational experiences we can open our minds to letting in more creative thought, drive and ultimately work that will lead to happiness.
I was recently on a trip to New Orleans where music is literally seeping out of the city's pores. Every step, every turn, every corner there is someone, somewhere just doing their thang, making music. It was mesmerizing.
And it made me realize that I've been in a serious live music drought. Life lesson #957 of the year: make more time for music. Reach out, find it and soak it in. And then go back and create some of your own magic.
