What did the pauper do with the business?

Well, if I had to ask myself this question as a musician, you would probably be distressed. Why? Because I fall into just another category of prodigal nature. I admit to it. The first thing you can advice to hypocracy in your own life. Yet, if you dig deep enough, if you can swallow your pride, you will find all things ugly enough to make you believe without self-convincing. The moment you do this, you will welcome the first step to advancement in a godly-sense. You may even feel a little enlightened. Relax for a little while, bliss only lasts for a little while. Insight is the only thing that separates a gentle like person to an overbearing thief. You don't have to stay that way if you didn't want to but wisdom comes to people who take on & follow their convictions. We now live in such an impersonal age where true emotion is ignored & knowledge is no longer information. Governments are on peace treaties simply because they have no choice but to collaborate. Been happening for a while, but now more evident in local policies which means your local town/s are feeling the weight. A tired world it is, but as a member of community & a global society, don't you think its time to digress, look up to your heroes & re-asses & re-evaluate why we do our worst & expect the best. Its a tired road, yet what surprises me more are the old wheels are still in motion. I have heard a lot from people I look up to that you need to tread the path where there is none. If you were to knuckle down & think about it clearly, makes a lot more sense than being beat up all the time. Though this very concept could be the very thing that can cover your liberty. The very thing that can enable you to look past your careers & professions to a calling for internal change of outlook & perspective directing you to do things with a greater sense of true fulfilment. Gives you a new code of reference & ethics & that alone is enough & sold it for me to travel this path that is less travelled. What did the pauper do with HIS business? Nothing yet.

The business of doing & simple daily practices that enhances productivity.

What's productivity? How do you define its measure? How do you view it based on your priorities? What decides where you put your focus, time & energies on? These questions are what we most often quietly ask ourselves in our subconscious though often times, due to debris, fail to hear our most distinct voices as we are choked by the things & concerns of this world. My field of interest (sometimes a little obsessive, which is ok), being the general creative industries, specifically in music, its very difficult to see things as they appear & personally, I pray everyday to gain clarity within it all as a daily creative. We are in the age of free media, & for the musician, that's generally not what we want. Its not reasonable to pursue the record industry due to exhausted business models caused by the internet. On the other hand, its the most important thing in my life, though however questionable. Not because there's no income from it, but just because of the b…

Questions of faith & reasoning.

Well, 2018. This makes this my very first entry for the year. I am caught up in the words I may have or haven't read about &/or spoke of in my early days of seeking the Christian faith & what I write about in this blog. & I am happy I have questioned myself & how scripture even may be still applicable today. Or if this didn't, it'd be still honestly the question of how it ever really did. I am a spiritual person & whether nature of belief is perfect, consider questions that points to the imperfection in you. The imperfections in us. Knowledge is worth nothing without further benefit. Thus, causing one to start questioning the reasons of why even bother seeking utopia when all else is hardly reached & seldom understood. Scripture for example raises a lot of issues, questions, fears & doubts. & double the trouble. Pretty scary to be real with it. Its what fuels my drive, desire & passion to communicate these specific questions through art …

What the technology surge means to the creative.

You've heard it before but it doesn't mean we all get the final picture. For the creative arts industry & record business, technology advancement has dictated our attitudes to our craft & what limits we put on our practice/s. For the artist, its been a great step up in terms of access to recording technologies not needing to much more than a soundcard & a computer. But, what it meant for the business is an out-pour of recorded works that diminished in demand strictly due to volume. Hence, the lack of what the current demand is also dictated the worth of even the best of artists in the recording industry that led to under-valued price tags just so streaming platforms can get their feed. That's ok with me for I have only really knew how to get by doing my own thing. But to the greats, its big business lost. & now, we all have grown to accept it. & it breaks 'fairness & due credit' where its due & really sad to have functioned on the dragon…
