I swore I would never do this. I told myself I would never blog. First of all, who would possibly be interested? The internet is so full of ever-changing variety, who would want to spend time reading the thoughts of one conductor/ professor born in Texas, educated in Chicago, and based in Oklahoma? Secondly, as our digital footprints become deeper and more numerous, do I really want to add to all of the things about me that are out there that can never be extracted? After all, trying to take something off of the internet is like trying to take urine out of a pool. Notwithstanding, recent activities (and the teacher within me) have inspired me to share some thoughts about how my professional life has positively affected my personal life, realistically on a weekly basis. Perhaps my thoughts can inspire others, and at this point in my life, I am ready to find out.
So, here we go!
