Advice to Travelers
by Walker Gibson
A burro once, sent by express,
His shipping ticket on his bridle,
Ate up his name and his address,
And in some warehouse, standing idle,
He waited till he like to died.
The moral hardly needs the showing:
Don’t keep things locked up deep inside —
Say who you are and where you’re going.
One of my three favorite poems of all time, just needed retelling. I’ve taken a week away from social media for a couple reasons, one of them to reassess where my business is and where it’s going, like the silly burro.
Playing classical acoustic and electric rock violin, all very good ~ awesome ~ fun ~ but I need a means to bring all my skills to the world, not do it merely for myself and a handful of people.
I need to positively influence thousands of people. Performing is one way, yes, but I want more than that.
Life sucks a lot ~ .compared to many others, I have nothing to complain about even though it seems overwhelming at times, especially lately. I want to change peoples’s lives in some grand and positive way,
My #1 love is performing violin in any way, shape, or form.
I passionately love outreach. I want to be able to do what Mark Wood is doing, bring joy of playing to the unenlightened, He goes waaaayyyy beyond violin lessons.
Just throwing it out there.
