Just thinking about what it takes to play music that's real. To live, for real.

Beauty comes at a high cost.

Sometimes there's no other way.

I heard once that the motto of the Tyler Rangerettes (cheerleaders from Tyler, TX) was "Beauty knows no pain". I always knew that was completely wrong. Pretty knows no pain. but beauty is born of pain, and in the process transforms it.
Beauty is as fierce as joy. Pretty and happy are simply not in the same league.
