    It's looking at things from the opposite perspective, Ivan, but that's no bad thing.

    Bearing all this good advice in mind, it seems I should stop off at a bar on the way back from work, buy everyone a drink (altruism) and maybe treat myself to one of those 'rewards' Rowuk mentioned. Eee, the sacrifices we have to make for our art!

    You mean like "Bad Trumpet" when we play a Bach instead of a Jaeger37 :evil:

    Interesting discussion! To me this seems very reminiscent of the concept of finding "flow", as described by noted psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. This reminds me I should go re-read his book...

    I need to dig out Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience again myself.

    Everything you ever had, everything you ever lost. It's all there in the trumpet--pain and hate and trouble and peace and quiet and love.
