hello all!

practice your music and sing!

a few thoughts:

nani did say that he was going to put every ounce of his blood in his whole body into the music and you (the students) so get ready.  today is a monday and i know they are hard but please think about some of the things we are trying to do.  yes – overall we are doing some interesting things! but take a look around, take a good luck around: only 4 more days.  there will always be an excuse not to do something.  some time when you wake up there will not be any more time left to try all of the things you want to do.  nani has done a lot for me since i first met him in 2006 but the biggest thing he has done for me is challenged the way i think about music.  can you make it groove so hard that EVERYONE wants to dance AND KEEP DANCING!  can you put so much energy into a single performance that all you want to do after is fall-asleep immediately.  can you sing and play so emotionally that you inspire those around you to the best of their abilities!  THOSE ARE THE QUESTIONS I HAVE!! THOSE ARE THE QUESTIONS I WANT THE ANSWERS TOO!!

here are some other questions:

WHY IS IT THAT ONLY SOME PEOPLE SHOW UP TO DRUMLINE REGULARLY!?

WHY IS IT THAT SOME PEOPLE ARE THE LAST TO ARRIVE BUT THE FIRST TO LEAVE!?

WHY IS IT THAT WE CANNOT BE TOGETHER ALL THE TIME!

WHY?

WHY DID I FORGET TO SING HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO KARLA!!? KARLA, I LOVE YOU!!

IS THIS THE REAL LIFE-OR IS THIS JUST FANTASY?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. I always wonder about that question, too. Sometimes I wish it was fantasy and imagine how life could be better! We owe it to you Mr. Flygt for giving us good life lessons.
