USED TO DO IT: Anywhere, city noises, other people in the room, shouting, conversations, tv, radio, on the bus, on the train, on the beach, in a bar, didn't mind.
THINGS HAVE CHANGED: Since a few years, I needed a quiet and private space and lots of time, I moved from Amsterdam to a quiet street in a smaller town. Why? Because it was no longer only a hobby; it was no longer free.
I am no longer free.
I realised this some months ago. I am now waiting for it to be free again. Composing should be fun.
Thank you for reminding me: I should try to do it on the bus again.
