- What/who inspires you?
Usually youngsters are inspired by an adult figure. But I have a different story to tell. I’m a “woman over 40” who finds inspiration in a young lady of 15. Alma Deutscher is a musical prodigy who composed her first piano sonata at age 6 and her first full-length opera, “Cinderella,” at age 10. Alma has performed in the great concert halls of the world, including Carnegie Hall. It’s an inspiration to see her playing the piano or violin, a diminutive figure with braids and a child’s face, performing with a full orchestra. There’s a radiant look on her face as she proudly plays the music she created. The Wall Street Journal wrote an article about her titled “A Girl Makes Music Without Irony or Ugliness,” describing her beautiful classical style and how it’s out of favor with today’s critics. The good news is that Alma doesn’t care! That’s what I find inspiring. She’s true to her own voice, with incredible integrity and a happy spirit that doesn’t hear the critics, but only her own original, beautiful melodies. I strive to have that attitude toward my writing and my critics.
