The Cost of Music as Compared to Noise

One of the great pursuits of this life is to determine and discover what your music is and is to be. You do this by using your God-given talents, pursuing your passions, and adhering to the ideals that you find worthy of such pursuit. These are also known as your instruments.

But there is a cost.

To say yes to one thing, one must say no to another thing.

Henry David Thoreau  once wrote, “The cost of a thing is the amount of what I call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.”

Which is why so many choose noise. It’s cheap. It’s easy. It’s a quick fix. It’s a life of instant gratification.

Music, on the other hand, requires romance…a long waltz in time with one’s instruments.

It’s the worth the cost as dividends are a friend of music.
