“trust and devotion. both a path and a goal.”

trust and devotion.
these 3 words appeared in front of my inner eye a couple of years ago.
and they have stuck, till today.
to trust my life and my vibrancy and to fully devote to it. that’s what i want.
yes, i wanna be alive, like a little child.
and i wanna inspire others with this vibrancy.
that’s why i make music.
it makes me feel alive.
that’s my job
i love it.

This allows me to pause and reflect. Time I probably would not have given myself otherwise. I’m revising this website among others. Old may go, new is welcomed.
