We are not the music maker for others

People can be pressured by others to dance to our tune but sooner or later they become deaf to our tune and start to dance to another tune of their choice.

Coercion, control and pressure never work in any relationship with others.

We are not here to make the music for others, we are here to make our own. Sure, that may inspire others, that is, of course, their choice if they choose to dance along too.

Never underestimate what you do

Today is the 44th anniversary of Hip Hop, according to Google, when on the 11th August 1973 a DJ known as Kool Herc invented the elongated ‘break’ that lead to the start of Hip Hop.

The thing is when he did that, he would have had no idea what was going to evolve from that and the changes that happened in music and culture from there.

We never know what will come from the things that we create, it’s uncertain and therefore it is not to be underestimated.

The one certainty is if we don’t create nothing will change or happen.

None of us knows where our creations will lead us and effects it could bring to the world.

Just keeping going.
