Today is a very special Friday Feast Day.
Appetizer: What is a symbol that inspires you?
It may not look like much, but add a clef or two
and the possibilities are infinite.
This spot -- on the edge -- is where it all begins.
Soup: Name something (either serious or funny) that has happened in your life that you would consider a miracle.
Despite a certain someone's protestations that TODAY counts, eleven years ago TONIGHT (10:04 pm for those of me who were counting) the most serious, the funniest and just plain old best damn miracle happened as TinyTuna made her long awaited, albeit 3-week late entrance into this world. Every single day has been an adventure that I wouldn't have missed for anything.
To TinyTuna, who amazes me and inspires me every single day,
who, for the next 365 days, at age 11 is officially ODD
Salad: How do you handle criticism?
Being a musician, criticism is a simple fact of life. I learned early on to listen to all criticism, accept it for what it was, take from it the valuable lessons that need to be learned, disregard comments that fall outside the scope of the task at hand, and just keep going. As long as criticism is constructive and not destructive, it's just another learning tool.
Main Course: Complete this sentence: I feel alone when...
...I'm driving home from a long day of teaching, it's late and I'm exhausted.
Dessert: Name one TV show you wouldn't want to be caught dead watching.
I suppose the worst thing to happen would be to die with the clicker in hand when you're in the Middle of Masterpiece Theatre, and then when the paramedics show up the next morning, it looks like you're watching Teletubbies.
