I WISH THAT I COULD SAY I ALWAYS HAVE THE PERFECT OUTLOOK ON LIFE. As a teen I had lived through more than many do in entire lifetimes . . . survived the pain and witnessed miracles. Enough to be strong & enough to be sure . . . but I see that no matter how far I come, I have new challenges to overcome - and new beasts to fight inside of myself. Why I keep going? It started before I could speak - the music . . . the singing . . . Violin at 2 . . . piano as soon as my fingers could hit the keys . . . and it is all I have. That and a love for people. Passion for life. This is my miracle. Wouldn't have it any other way.
