I come from a big family! and in a lot of ways have transferred my family philosophy to my work philosophy. LOVE LOVE LOVE and more LOVE. My ideal work day consists of a genuine feeling of community. I practice this philosophy and make it a way of life just like I would practicing scales.
Sarah freaks out a little about New Years and talks about a 2014 resolution to get back in to piano lessons.
*In the middle of this I start using the word “create” by itself, and what I mean is jumping into the unknown/ adventure/ the road less traveled/ start from scratch/ discover/ explore in a new way. Personally, “Taking my bike” has meant going from “performer” and taking on the additional role of “producer”. This also has been expressed in my life in going from artistically expressing myself in New York City, a place where the music/ art scene is super diverse, to challenging myself to reach new audiences in communities on Long Island where I grew up and is not known for art like the city. What is implied in each of our thinking through the use of those words “create, adventure, discover, TAKE YOUR BIKE” is individual to us and our experience and may alter as we grow and evolve. TAKE YOUR BIKE! I hope this logic, inspires you in your own special way!
