    Hello poet Dave. One never knows what he or she can become, and we should always be alert to the potential in others. Well done, Loyd (Report) Reply

    Reconciling with one's past is a conscious effort that cannot be replaced by any amount of success. The reconciling is the success. I find the world looks quite the same from a dirty alley or a fancy living room when I am at peace with who I am. Without his tragic beginnings I doubt he could have become so dependent on the piano. A great example of making your own choices in spite of your situation. He could of chose to do a ton of less productive things than playing piano. Provo! ! (Report) Reply
