As a working musician, or anyone whose work is also their passion, it’s easy to forget why the hell you’re doing what you’re doing. Creating art and performing can become “commoditized” and become arduous or even *gasp* feel like a job. I feel it’s important to change things up, play around with new things just for fun. Take time to play or write for zero reason, with no inward or outward pressure. Keeping the “love” when involved in a “labor of love” is key to keeping the fire alive, maintaining growth, and creating meaningful work.
