Composition and Peer Reception

An artist is giving something of himself when he creates a piece of music.  Deep within, he senses the path that a melody must take.  When he shares that melody, he is giving a glimpse of his emotions to the world.  When Rick McMillen told me that he found Away from Rush Hour to be a work of art, and that it would help to change the world, I felt a stirring inside that encouraged me to continue to share the music that is aching to come forth from my inner most soul.  To be able to share in giving peace, love, and joy through music, what satisfaction!  Who can describe it?
