A College Story: The Universe Speaks!

I went to college in beautiful Maine, at Bowdoin. I studied music there and in many ways it shaped me for my future life.

While I was there, I had many inspirational and transformational experiences, one of which I was reminiscing about just this morning.

One afternoon in class, my professor handed me back an exam that I had taken a few days prior.

I looked down at the page and my grade was significantly lower than I had expected. I walked up to him after class and asked him why. He responded… “you never get anywhere playing it safe.”

He went on… “Sure, your answers were correct, but I couldn’t feel ‘you’ in them. Rather I felt that you were trying to please me for a grade.”
