    Thank you both for this episode. It was inspirational and made me want to finish my website I started building some time ago (also WordPress template), but never got to “release” it since I didn’t have enough content to put there in the first place. Arthur, I am at very similar point a you were describing in the interview….I know I want to compose, I feel good when doing it and things go right and fit into places the right way, but after a while I realize I haven’t done any music for a shameful long time. And your words hit the right ground and I want to do the work, because it makes me feel good and useful, even if get discouraged by someone or something. I still want to do it. Thank you, I am coming back.
