Where do we draw a line when it comes to performing? Do we draw the line? Do we have a choice? I’m pondering these questions today. I may blog about it later.

But what do other readers of this blog do? Would you play for something if you knew it was in support of something that you oppose? Is it all about the money? Just how far would you go for that paycheck? How do you decide?

And how helpful is the “not knowing” (which is where I was last night). Is ignorance bliss?

No.

Best to remember that the above quote has more to it that those three words “Ignorance is bliss”:

To each his sufferings: all are men,
Condemned alike to groan;
The tender for another’s pain,
The unfeeling for his own.
Yet ah! why should they know their fate?
Since sorrow never comes too late,
And happiness too swiftly flies.
Thought would destroy their paradise.
No more; where ignorance is bliss,
‘Tis folly to be wise.
