Rewards for Efforts

8 years ago

Each week I teach songwriting and guitar in a women's prison. It took about a year and a half to set up the program, amidst many challenges with government red tape etc. One of my students was so shy initially that she would not play in front of anyone. Yesterday I watched her play in front of over a hundred people, solo!

If ever there was a reward for my efforts, this is one. Life is beautiful!
