I love digging in the dirt in my garden, making music with my friends, riding my bike along the California coast, shooting hoops in a pickup game, and just hanging with my family. I love being both a student and a teacher in my life. I try to bring something to, and learn something from, every situation.
“We figured there was too much happiness here for just the two of us, so we figured the next logical step was to have us a critter.” —H.I. McDunnough, Raising Arizona. Choosing to be a parent shouldn’t require an explanation, but the above quote really says it all.
My parents gave me a drum set for Christmas. I rocked my entire neighborhood for exactly 2 days with extended solos that I imagined were met with wild adoration from screaming fans. When the din died down, I realized the screams were from my father, imploring me to “Get those drums out of this house!”
