All In The Family?

I'm afraid to start a "family business" but we will see what happens...

My niece told my sister Kathy about my career change. While my niece plays guitar, sings, and writes some lyrics apparently, my sister is learning piano and says she has "lyrics literally everywhere because I write literally everywhere." So we are now talking about doing things together, possibly with various combinations of the three of us. I'm interested in what kind of lyrics Kathy writes. I actually have no idea. Kathy and I are 12 years apart and we are very similar in some ways, and very different in others. It could be an interesting combination.

What's funny is that I seem to be getting way more response to being a musician/songwriter than I ever did to being a web developer. I really thought there would be a lot of interest in me being a web developer, that I would get a lot of people asking me about it and working with them. OTOH, I was kind of expecting a lot of "are you crazy???" reactions when I told people about the music choice, and I seem to be getting the opposite reaction. There are two possible things I could be missing though. The first is that maybe I did get a lot of response to the web stuff, but it's my enthusiasm for the music that is making me see what reaction I'm getting to the music career. The other is that maybe my lack of enthusiasm for the web stuff might not have sold it to people like my enthusiasm for the music is doing.
