For a few years I have practiced outside my NYC apartment in the building hallway. I do this to get away from my laptop and also enjoy natural reverb!
Moments ago, I heard little guitar strings getting plucked outside my door by someone else.
I sensed that I was being summoned, so I opened my door to see who it was.
A little boy named Matthew (age 7) got a mini guitar for Christmas.
His family lives 2 apartments down the hall…he’d been inspired by hearing me play out there.
I asked him if he liked Michael Jackson, and his face lit up. “I love Michael Jackson!”
I asked them to wait one moment at my door. I came back out with a gift in hand. I handed him & his mom an “I REMEMBER MICHAEL” CD.
As I gave inspiration to this little guy, I was reminded that this is what it’s REALLY all about – passing inspiration forward.
