Musical Legacy

Bucket list, item 1

I got to spend part of the morning having coffee with a couple who asked me a rather startling question.

Why?

Why do you do music?   Why do you want to succeed?

And it stopped me in my tracks for a bit.

I had to think about this question.   Why, indeed?

Why do I want all this frustration, all these empty shows, all this hard work?  What’s the point?

As I sipped my coffee and reflected for a moment, the answer formed.

“I want to help people.   I want more so I can give more.”

My friend’s eyes lit up and he said, “Now you’re thinking.”

And the more I do, the more I think about what I could give, what I could do with great success.

There’s an amazing school in Tuscaloosa, Alabama that I would just love to give an absurd amount of money to.

There’s my mother, who instilled this love of music and art in my heart in the first place that I would love to set up for the rest of her life.

There’s my own family, that I would just love to make sure is provided for in every way I can think of.

There are so many, many things that I want to give to.

I realized that I want more so I can give more.

And my God, how fun will that be?

I can’t wait to give more than I can now.

And I am so thankful for all of you who read these silly posts and support my music.

Every thing you do puts me one step further to great deeds.
