Being contended, happy and satisfied at a single point in your life. Or just maybe, experiencing this explosion of euphoric bliss every single day.

With artists like you and me, these attempts to hit the emotional lotto are compounded exponentially.

As far as we’re concerned, we’re only as good as our last creation. And our perception is either we were truly happy with it or we thought it stunk to high heaven and needed a ton of improvement.

This kind of mindfulness is a fleeting little beast.

Emphatically no.

There’s an old saying around here, “Ya ain’t going to win the lotto if you don’t play.”

And we remember what those moments were like.
