I wrote a post back in December of 2011 on Live-journal, describing almost exactly what I'm doing now, and I just found it while combing through old emails. A beautiful double-epiphany of realization, both that I wanted these things then and that I have actually found a way to do them, now. I'm not done yet. There is still so much to do and learn, but I might actually be headed down the right path and that is HUGE.
If you don't know HOW it is I am doing those things now, check out Church of Beethoven-Tucson and ChamberLab. Yes, that's me with the bassoon and the train and the AMAZING Chris Black.
