. . . and replenish

Yesterday (3/21) was J.S. Bach's birthday. His production is amazing. Why did Bach work so hard and write so much? Perhaps the answer is as reductive as it is practical: he had to support a family. If I am not mistaken, even though half of his children died as babies, between his two marriages he fathered 20 children. Having or the prospect of having children certainly puts one in a responsible position.

Motherhood necessitates invention.
