Anyone else who only writes music when they "Have To"

I'm so sorry to hear about your parakeet, gaffster. My condolensces to you.

I listened to your piece of music, it's lovely and a fitting tribute.

In reply to your question about whether anyone else only writes music when they "have to" - I guess one person's time of "have to" can be different from anothers.

I write music all of the time, as long as things are going OK. When I am upset about something, I CAN'T write music. Over the past year I had an unsettling experience and I found I turned to writing poetry instead of the piano.

[I kinda wonder if that means anything? I mean, you'd think when a person who composes at the piano gets upset about something, they'd turn to the piano, but that's when my ability to compose "dries up".??]

Getting back to your parakeet. $19.95 for years of music. Some things may cost little but are priceless items that add much happiness to our lives.

Your pet is in heaven now. Flying wild and free.

Sorry about your pet. The death of a pet can affect us as much as the death of a close human being. It is good that you can take comfort from your music at such a time. I tend to align with Jeanne in that I belong to the "emotion recollected in tranquillity" type rather than the direct response type.

In the end, grief is a personal process and so is the creation of music. How you manage either or relate them one to the other is entirely in your own hands.

Take care,
Ted.

Thank-you guys, for your kind and wise replies. Expression of grief takes many forms. Amazing how a little bird can reset your priorities. English for "Carpe' Diem"?, I guess.

Yes. I think Wordsworth used it first in relation to his poetry. I knew somebody had said it so I put it in quotes but I wasn't certain exactly who.

I don't know why, but the thread topic reminded me of that Monty Python bit...
