It's therapy. For 5 minutes or 5 hours, I can just lose myself. I improvise a lot, don't play too many predetermined songs (barely remember my own songs too), but I create new songs within the moment. I might forget them, but the process is it's own reward.
Exactly this. The ability to forget about your worries and problems while making music makes playing worth it.
