How the heck do you simply forget about years of your life and the passion that once defined them?
I just stumbled across a box containing hundreds of musical scores that I had composed when I was 15, 16, 17 years old. I was prolific. Then life happened and I put it all away.
I haven’t thought about this in years. The only reason it occurred to me now was that I found this old stuff when I went looking for a number scores I had written and recorded 10 or 15 years ago. (I want to be able to work with an orchestra to do a handful of them properly because I have paralysing performance anxiety).
How I so easily gave up something that mattered so much to me before I got married and had kids is perplexing.
What have YOU given up that you would love to reclaim?
