Dr. Wayne W. Dyer encouraged us, “Don’t die with your music still in you.”
Before I was burned, I had loved to play the piano. I wasn’t any good but I loved it. That love was robbed from me when my fingers were amputated after the fire when I was nine years old.
But my parents challenged me to play; to not die with music still in me. At first it was painful and I could only play one key at a time. But I played. I practiced. And I believed.
Today I play a song on the piano for you because I have a song to share! Listen and then accept my challenge: Don’t die with your music still in you.
My friends, you have music to share. This is your day. Live inspired!
