always keep a horse on your shoulder.

Dan Goldstein writes about the creative process, about creative force in nature and links to spirituality and G-d, about valuing the concrete aspects of creation, found in nature and in art.

Dan Goldstein began his creative journey as a classical oboist.  He eventually received undergraduate and graduate degrees in musical performance, and freelanced for a period of time in San Francisco and Los Angeles.  Later Goldstein began exploring the electronic wind instrument (EWI), and around the same time started his work in electronic composition.

    Love your blog. We have two things in common, the pursuit of spreading the creative dream and playing the oboe. I never made it to the level up did. Look forward to reading more of your blogs, on a more regular basis.
