likewise, thats probably the reason i dropped out of my Ph.D... and
havent come back to it... with no regrets...

i have nothing against composers who wish to work in an academic method,
but it is not my way... i had to leave and find my own path. go
walkabout... find myself... whatever...

i do love to see individual potentials realized both in my students and
working on them personally in myself...

heh... aren't we getting back to Nietzsche here?
