One of the driving forces for artistic expression is an inclination to spend one's time creating from a source deep within oneself, as if at play, and amusing oneself for hours and days upon end with the satisfaction of creating beautiful sounds and images. In between, an ordinary existence evolves and artists must deal with the same basic survival skills as those whose talents are not so much in the arts. Creation takes on a new context and the artist in the world at large must also create his/her life, yet another work of art, but as well a life reflecting the current social order. Thus, we writers and composers reflect on situations both personal and public and give voice to our concerns. Most grateful for her listeners is, Elyse O'Connor, Singer, poet, artist, person in the world.
