Dr Johnson said he wrote for money, and no one but a fool would do it for anything else.

Nowadays i am virtually retired and over the years I learned to absorb whole new repertoires quickly and professionally.

However now I have only myself to please, I am finding it very difficult to play things the way I want. maybe I am overcomplicating stuff.

I haven't as yet noticed any decline of my skills. Indeed i am dreading when that gets taken away from me, something I watched happening with the men who taught me.

I suppose the financial incentive imposes a discipline to work within your ability.
