Recently I found this quote from musician Bruce Cockburn. It’s a good description of how I view my job in music too:

“My job is to translate what I understand of the human experience into some sort of communicable form, that then becomes a vehicle for the sharing of experience with whoever is interested enough to listen. So that allows the field to be extremely broad. Although there are some songs that deal directly with spiritual experiences, most of what I write is an observation, informed by my particular interest in spirituality.” – Bruce Cockburn
