Apologies for missing several days - sometimes things pile up in unexpected ways.

I am thinking a lot about singularity, particularly how out-of- sync it is with the prevailing wind approach to culture. That affects everything we buy, think, foster in our children and in each other -- everything.

What happened to it?

Why is it like sticking one's head into a guillotine to hatch an idea that doesn't conform to the accepted norms? I find myself in this odd position of having had a strong influence on the singular lives of quite a few individuals, some of them professional musicians, and yet with my approach singularly unvalued by music school administration.

Odd, isn't it?
