  1. Great Video and finding more out about Matt. Thanks so much Dan!

  2. Wow! Thank you Matt and Dan. Very inspiring, heartfelt words.

    Matt, you spoke about the experience of having a guiding vision of a story before writing it. Feeling like the stage was set, and you just needed to let it happen. Very occasionally, mostly during meditation retreats, I’ve experienced that feeling- like everything was in it’s right place in my life. Or would just fall into place by itself if I let it. Nothing to do but enjoy the process. In the past few months that feeling has settled over me in a different context. When I first heard the new Jeff Beck record – and seeing the music industry through your words.

    Thanks man.
