My brother Dave, the world famous trumpet maker, called me to chat a few days ago. Here's a snippet of our conversation.
Dave: One of my clients just played for the Obamas at the White House.
Me: How could he do that? I'd be so nervous I couldn't get a note out.
Dave: Playing trumpet is his life. He lives for it. He wasn't nervous at all.
Dave: Would you be nervous knitting a sock at the White House?
Me: Well, no. I'm willing to entertain the Obamas with sock knitting anytime they want to invite me.
