There is a serendipitous quality to the internet and social media. We make connections we wouldn’t have imagined otherwise. With that thought in mind, here’s a quote that I came across on the Facebook site of Pam Asberry, a single parent/musician/piano teacher/writer who happened to “Like” the Facebook site for my book Everything We Needed to Know About Business, We Learned Playing Music. With the inherent challenges that music educators face these days, I thought this quote might strike a “chord” with many of our readers:
“For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life – but there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles WERE my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.
So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one.”
