"I believe that music is the most important when the music stops. When a piece ends, that's when I really measure what effect it had on me or those who heard it." Michael Tilson Thomas
Same with teaching, don't you think?
And parenting, although the music only pauses for the briefest moments.
And Solstice parties, after all the guests have gone.
Come to think of it, any creative act qualifies.
So go forth and "make some music," but be sure you pay attention to what happens after the "music" stops.
