My daughter played in her annual piano competition at my alma mater, Youngstown State University, today. The room she played in was across from the band director's office. I noticed because I played in YSU's Marching Pride two years. Perusing the bulletin board I found this paragraph. I'm not sure who Ira Glass is exactly (a radio/TV guy I guess), but I think what he has to say is something many artists need to hear. So on this rainy Ohio morning I'm sending out these words of inspiration.
