Music is a big continent with different landscapes and corners. Some of them I do visit frequently, some from time to time and some I know from hearsay only ...

There will come a time when I will read that again. Probably when I read it to my kids. One of the most entertaining books ever.

I'm currently not reading but watching a lecture by canadian psychologist Jordan B. Peterson. It's basically a mixture of psychology, mythology and symbolic representation of human psychology, history class, biology, education, political science and much more. Very interesting and enlightening. The first lecture can be found here:

Maps of Meaning

The following lectures as well as his other lecture on personality can be found on youtube.

Especially when you consider it was a trilogy in 5 parts. I must read them again.

Only today I was watching a documentary on YouTube about his life. He was an extraordinary man in so many ways; for example, did you know that for his 42nd birthday he was invited to play guitar on stage with Pink Floyd? Further, he was friends with a number of the rock n' roll fraternity and would often extend invitations for them to play at his home. They would turn up expecting a friendly jam session and find about 200 people crammed in the house waiting expectantly. They still played as they respected him so much. Besides, how could you not read something written by a man who made missing deadlines into an art form; he explained to his editors that he liked the sound they made as the wooshed past.

Great book, though a tough read. This book, or the summary, should be on everyones to read list.
