Thank you!

There is depth in what you wrote. The first BOLD statement I am not even going to touch because it is too difficult and too sensitive of a topic, but it is true. The second BOLD statement is also true. PLAYFUL exploration can lead to the discovery of something new. There is no need to explore what you already know or break the "rules" unless you have a desire to create something new.
"New means change the method. New methods change the experience. New experiences change man." - Karlheinz Stockhausen
I am not going to touch what the "rules" are because there are musical rules, social rules, and self-imposed rules. The latter rules are personal, difficult to understand, and really hard to break. I mainly wanted to let you know there is depth in what you wrote and it was refreshing to hear and has given me something to think about...

Rich, thank you for these kind words! It was so nice meeting Angelo and I'm so glad he was pleased!
