What do you do when your day to day activities seem to lack some spark and inspiration? Do you need to go to wildlife safari or ride a motorcycle to get some adrenaline and add some meaning back into your life?
I tell you what I do.
I sit on the organ bench and create stories. Wild stories. Stories that scare me. Stories that sooth me too.
On the organ bench I can travel the world and travel in time. On the organ bench I can imagine a sound of 1000 howling wolves (from the legend about the founding of Vilnius) or underwater world (from the fairy tale about the Little Mermaid) or music of the spheres (from the Song for Saint Cecilia day).
This way I can be pretty much a regular guy in my normal life and daring greatly in my art.
What about you? Will you sit down on your organ bench today?
