Sometimes in life you just wish people would do better. However, the version of better that you wish they would do is inevitably your version of better. This will usually not work because you are not them. So I say to myself, " Isn't it just obvious that such and such is not being carried out properly?" I once again have to admit that the statement is also not exactly true. This is a lead in to my story.
Once again on the train I observed an action that gave me pause. I was sitting on a relatively empty train. I watched people as I always do. The information that is available on one train ride is just so plentiful that it rocks my soul. There was a man sitting to my immediate right across from me.

Just the other day a fellow musician told me something that gave me pause in the most positive way. He told me that there was something within me that was bigger than I could see.
