For most of us, maintaining stability with our systems is paramount. Turn the system on, have it work the way we expect, enjoy the music without hassles. Not much better than that.
Yet, to stay on top of the progress that's being made we're also obliged to remain a bit fluid: to stay up to date with changes in media and equipment, to keep our ear to the ground for new developments.
We love stability. It comforts us. We can relax after a trying day and just enjoy the music. Yet, over time, our restless nature find its way into our lives. We poke our heads out of our everyday routines and venture forth to elevate our pleasures even further.
It's a careful dance between maintaining the status quo and staying up to date with the world around us.
But it's a dance worth dancing. The best of both worlds.
