    Accepting the reality of the situation was the opening for Keith Jarrett to work and play with that reality. He started to quit on the project, and then decided to use what he had, making it the basis of hiscreation. Playing the piano the way Keith Jarrett is described to play is to play out of one's inner self. The playing is spontaneous and creative, not scripted and rehearsed. I create on a foundation of the reality I'm in when I'm in the present relating to what I am experiencing in relation to and in response to the person I am with. I don't have an intention or goal; I'm not trying to get anywhere or accomplish anything; I'm simply in and with the process as its happening. In that experience I am creating in tune with the reality I am in. What helps me do that is the aliveness, excitement, joy, and satisfaction in doing it, and the positive outcome that usually comes from it.
