Being completely consumed by the harp is a good thing.

“You must be completely obsessed with music to succeed.”

A teacher whom I adored and respected told me this when I was young.  In order to thrive, I needed to eat, sleep, and breathe my work. Could I imagine a life without my harp playing being the centerpiece of each day? Would I be able to sacrifice nights, weekends and holidays with family? Was I willing to let my passion become my obsession and my raison d’être?

The word “obsession” might fill some hearts with fear. However, my obsession has not been a curse, but a blessing. My obsession has enriched my life and hopefully the lives of others with whom I have been fortunate enough to share it. My obsession propels me out of bed each morning. It has been my life for decades.
