I learned piano for many years. Some say I became skilled. I love to play. Yet I don’t make myself smile at what I play much any more. Tonight I’ve been smiling at Jamie Cullum‘s work – first time I’ve even heard of him in Adelaide was this week, not 24 hours ago.
I should get me some more finger skill. And some jazz technique. And some impro ability. Money in currently < money out, so something has to go!
No, that’s not just a placeholder title demonstrating a complete lack of editorial thought. I’m speaking of a fixation which occurred to me today. Heaps of people are totally fixated on stuff.
What stuff am I fixated on [do I have/am I spending money on] currently? I’d say pianos, my car (it’s actually a wagon) and my computer. But I don’t really know if these things are a product of the things that the world says I should buy, or my own personal desire. And are they the best use of my hard earned part-time income? I should be a poor Uni student yet I’m accumulating stuff faster than my laptop screen accumulates fingerprints.
Something to ponder. What’s more important: stuff or skill? I’ll be pondering it…
Yep. A domain name. Remember it, or not. =)
Amazing. Now I have a blog. No commitment to regular updates, no promises about thrilling content. Just my blog.
Maybe just some comments, some occasional photos, perhaps some insightful memes. Or at least a couple of random fixations here and there…
