Replying to LO11759 --

I fastened my selt belt and took the ride. It was nice to see that I
remembered how to decipher intellectual musings, but with all due respect
I did not learn from the contribution from a PRACTICAL perspective. That
is okay, I assume.

On your posting, I have found learning to come not from creativity, but
from allowing oneself the freedom to learn. My prior experience as a
musician for 15 years was that creativity came from freedom to learn and
explore -- not from the learning itself.

Learning is hard, creating is fluid. Simply Zen, yes? In other words,
run scales every day for 4 hours (I did for years) and then let them go
and create. Learn, decide to be free to learn, and create. Do you agree?
(please answer simply, so I can mos t effectively learn).
