Personal Best Dreams

Right when the pandemic started, I decided I was going to sell all of my Ham Radio (KY6R) gear and get back into music. I’d been away from music 30 years.

In the 80’s I was impatient, young, had dreams of being a rock star but really didn’t put in the year or two of daily hard work, practice and study to become a fledgling or beginner level musician. I thought the new music gear would magically make me a better musician. I did take a couple community college piano classes and a song writing class, so I wasn’t 100% ignorant. Maybe 90%.

Youth surely is wasted on the young.

My new dreams are to do better and become a reasonably good musician and song writer. The journey is the goal this time. Ham Radio ran its course as a hobby, but I fully expect music will be something I’ll work at the rest of my life. I have finally jumped up one level from “hacker” to beginner.

Hey, there’s a song idea here!

I’m going to teach myself to play electric cello
Do your best
It's all you can do
Said the coach to the team
Do your best
Don't forget your dreams!

It's 1% inspiration
And 99% perspiration
Said the leader of the band
Do your best
Dream big, dream grand!

Practice makes perfect
It's a long game
Said the teacher to class
Do your best
Your dreams will come to pass

Most of all
Keep doing Your Will
Said the person to herself
Whilst running up the hill
Your best effort is your wealth
