“I feel blessed because music and art have been such a vital part of my life. To witness the natural creative process is a miracle to behold. The human spirit with all of its frailty is still able to respond to the heartbeat of the arts. The timeless quality of great art is such that no technology can replace it. There is nothing more complex or beautiful in its simplicity than a musical phrase or more moving than a powerful work of art.”
