Music–serious music–requires the kind of hard work and dedication that only obsessive-compulsive people are able to dedicate to it.
Without being neither terribly obsessive about much of anything in this life, nor having worked up enough slather to be compulsive about much of anything, music simply does not fit into the category of ‘serious’ for me. Rather, I do it for fun, and as we all know, anything one does for fun can never be ‘serious’, can it? The only side effect that having fun causes is a bit of an addiction to that which makes the fun. Hence, I am a bit addicted to my music. Not obsessive–not compulsive…just a little tiny bit—addicted.
