I decided to put the lyrics of Mama Cass Elliot's Make Your Own Kind Of Music as I was listening to it and it reminds me of a time around 1998 when I was going through a bad time and I heard this song on a film called Beautiful Thing. The song just summed up how I felt and what I needed to hear. Sometimes the lifestyle you choose, some people can't or won't understand it and no longer want to know you, so you have to follow your own path to get to where you need to be. I have been on that path and it has led me to where I am today.
Here's a saying I found and it sums up the way I feel about music
"One good thing about music, when it hit's you, you feel no pain"
