Love365, day 14

Posted on January 14, 2015. Filed under: My Lemon Recipes |

When I was in 5th grade, I had to pick a musical instrument to play.  I chose the clarinet.   I did ok, but didn’t feel completely comfortable.   My real passion was percussion.  I learned from my mom and my late cousin Jimmy, but had no formal training.

When I got to high school, I had some experience,  but not enough to be allowed to play formally for the school band.  A senior who was the head of the percussion section, also was my guardian and church big sister.  She advocated for me  and persuaded the music director to give me a chance.  I passed with flying colors and was placed under my big sister’s wing. By the time I was a senior, I was the head of percussion for the orchestra doing what I love.  It opened the door to my self esteem and happiness during a challenging time.

I’ve played drums and other percussion in bands on and off up until 2008.

What is your passion? What thing that you love to do changed your life?

Thank you and my love to you always,  Crystal Ann Mitchell.
