A long message from a friend this week, on a particularly grueling day:
It’s an interesting take that we’re both men in our fifties leading exciting and wonderful lives; our parents trained us for these lives. My God, look at how many lives we each touch, daily, and how many through the years. I wonder what our parents’ dreams were for each of us. I don’t think there’s any question that we probably went beyond their hopes, and we can rest in the fact we’ve made them proud.
They did a damn good job. Our lives are significantly “more” because of the life-riches they secured.
Why were each of us that child who elected to do more? Who reached out for more?
We have these incredible lives our parents helped establish. And our parents believed in our music which would become the core of these incredible lives.
We’ve been blessed. We will continue to bless others.
