Okay, so maybe there's actually only one theme here: sometimes yes, and sometimes not so much.
I haven't worked with Bc all that long (comparatively speaking). I'd say it's only been, maybe, three or four years.

On two separate occasions, in the past month or so of working with Bc, I've had this very strong sense of feeling bothered. Not exactly bothered, really- it was more a wondering, "Does this man really want music therapy? Am I just getting on his nerves?
