to a hero on his birthday.

"May we trust the inexpressible benevolence of the creative impulse.

"Don't be helpful: be available.

"When a musician believes that music is a commodity, music dies in them.

"We pay our own tab.

"In the creative leap, history waits outside.

"Define the aim simply, clearly, briefly, positively

"Anything within a performance is significant, whether intentional or not.

"May the quality with which we live our life honour the lives of our parents and mentors.

"If we can define our aim, we are halfway to achieving it.

"We may not have an equality of talent.
We may not have an equality of experience.
But we may be equal in aspiration.
We can be equal in commitment."

Happy Birthday, Mr. Fripp.
