Do Not Scatter Your Powers

"Do not scatter your powers. Engage in one kind of business only, and stick to it, faithfully,  until you succeed, or until your experience shows you that you should abandon it. A constant hammering on one nail will generally drive it home at last, so that it can be clinched." Barnum & Bailey
I share this quote with you, my friend. Whatever it is that you love to do, just do it and keep doing it. If I could add something to that quote, it would be "use your powers for good." The world needs more people like us. Do not get discouraged! Every day is a new beginning, every experience is a life lesson. Ever since that cattle call for "The Voice," I find myself more grateful than ever for this gift of music, which was handed down to me by my father. But that is another post for another day.  I'm pumped up - this week's rehearsal was a good one!

Now, time to get ready for tonight's show at the Smokehouse in Novato with Livin' Like Kings. Hey, I know it's not Madison Square Garden - yet - but I'm excited!
For a couple of hours, we'll give you all we have to give.

p.s. Hope to see you tonight so I can share some music with you, give you a hug and thank you for sharing your time with us, for being a part of this journey.
