Hardiman the Fiddler I'm not worthy...or Am I? (64* d) RE: I'm not worthy...or Am I? 23 May 00


Mmario, I remember the day my dad insisted that we try to fix an old lawnmower, and I asked him, "Dad, what do we know about fixing anything with a gasoline engine."

His response, "Absolutely nothing son."

He continued, "We could pay to have it fixed, but I don't have the money; we could put it out in the alley, but then I'd have to buy an new one, or who knows, we could just get lucky..."

We took it apart, and put it back together again. There was one spring left over. Durn if it didn't run for five more seasons. It was better to have given it a "whack" than not to have tried at all. Ever since then, I've figured, even when it comes to music, it is better to give it a whack than to have never tried at all. I hear every wrong note, especially when I'm fiddling. But it is still better to have tried than to have left it in the case gathering dust.

Greg
