It always saddens me to think that after all I am not yet a proper musician; but I have more aptitude for the calling than probably many of the younger generation have as a rule. Boys should be allowed to indulge themselves in jolly music; the serious kind comes of its own accord. How lucky is the man who, of an evening, writes some fresh music. For he lives while he is creating.
