Go ahead, scare me

Yo-Yo Ma, Meryl Streep, Neil Diamond, Sonny Rollins, Barbara Cook

Did anyone catch the Kennedy Center honors last week?  I am in awe of these inspiring artists from all disciplines because of their dedication to their craft and humanity.  One of the memorable statements late in the show was from Yo Yo Ma about his life as a cellist.  He said that every day he moves towards the "unknown" and that it's scary to do so.  He also said he must like being scared, because he keeps doing it!

So…get out there and do something that scares you, and love every minute!

Bring it on, 2012

p.s.  I just took my first hip-hop class (even if I did stay in the back row).  Go for it!
