music is the means for me to try to understand the life we live...no one said it would be easy, but that doesn't stop me from trying to be the best person i can. music enables me to do this, and when i talk about music i don't just mean my own. my own music is such a small drop in a very big lake full of wonder. life is good when people smile and so i try to smile at least once every day...it is often music that helps me do so. life is also good when you see how amazing this world is. sometimes this is hard, even impossible, but we must keep trying.
