I've often sat waiting at my instrument pondering the creation of my world of chibuzo while a dance choreographer, band leader, vocalist, or director actively engaged other company members in the shaping of their projects. I knew over a quarter century ago that it would take me a long time to bring my world to fruition. Something I wrote in my teens always came to mind. "Mysteries revealed are unsealed by silent eyes that pay for secrets with love and time". I'd silently sing that to myself for grounding and continue working.
