Contrapposto and Security

    I have always been accused of being contrary to what is considered the social norm.  Sure, boundaries must be crossed, sacred cows pushed over and paradigms shifted.  I've just grown past being contrary just for the sake of disagreement. In getting older, I see the value in finding agreements in other people. Still I see paradigms that haven't shifted, sacred cows still standing and people staying within their own boundries.  
    In relation to music, I was offered an opportunity to teach music in another community.  I applied for the job, hit a homerun in the interview but didn't follow up.  First of all, I've tired of leaving people.  I'm fresh out of a divorce and I left my many good friends in Bozeman, Mt to move to Whitefish, Mt.  Now that I've made a fresh niche in Whitefish, I cannot selfishly leave what I have going on here.  I love being a part of Fresh off the Vine, principle cellist in the Glacier Symphony and Chorale and various other ensembles.  Now is my time to expand, to promote and develop myself as a musician.

   Fighting the popular opinion is not my gig, I want to remain palatable to the general public whether it be in music or in my views of politics, religion ect.. I will stay intellectually honest with myself hoping to pursue my dreams and goals.
