The Decision

While I was clearing a pile from my desk, I found this quote written on a piece of paper "Music changes people.  That's both and opportunity and a responsibility."  I wish I knew who to attribute these mighty words to, but alas I do not.  As I pondered these words, I wondered how best I can allow that potential for change that music holds to come through.  How I might best serve the opportunity.

And then the thought hit home - to take the risk of playing great.  Not hold back, not be content with having overcome fear; but to truly give playing everything I am.  And now I have said it publicly.
