"When I speak of the gifted listener, I am thinking of the non-musician primarily, of the listener who intends to retain his amateur status. It is the thought of just such a listener that excites the composer in me."
1900 - 1990
Artists, musicians, actors, speakers, storytellers and writers all want and need a caring audience who is interested in their work. We want and need an audience who understands and appreciates what we create. Finding such an audience takes time and patience. And sometimes it takes several lifetimes. Be grateful for the audience you have and give thanks to those who take the time to appreciate what you create.
