Musicians and Money- The Earth Ticket
“If you want to play music, don’t buy the earth ticket.” – Colonel Bruce Hampton
The legendary Col Bruce Hampton leads a rich life as a musician, actor,mentor and artist. He’s lived by his own advice.
If you want to play music, don’t purchase the “earth ticket”. The earth ticket is an expensive car, a pricey house, a high maintenance lifestyle. The earth ticket is everything new, the best that money can buy. It can also refer to habits: drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, hobbies.
An earth ticket in exchanged for your hopes, dreams, ambitions and desires to ply your musical or artistic craft. Money is life energy, irretrievable and irreplaceable, finite and precious.
Rich and wealthy have very little to do with a bank account and eveything to do with the satisfaction and peace of ones soul, particularly if they’ve been blessed with the magnanimous gift of music.
Allow your soul to soar without the boat anchor of an earth ticket.
