WELCOME TO MY WORLD
What a wonderful experience. A chance to show my Guitarbike and entertain the children at the Shriners Hospital in San Francisco, CA.
The theme of my talk was "Follow Your Dream". I told them about one of my dreams of building and riding a guitar. How long does it take to make a dream come true. Well I must tell you that not all of our dreams come true.
When I was a child I strummed on my guitar and thought what if I become famous and make a lot of money and everybody liked me! That would be just fantastic. Of course that never happemed and I still strum on my guitar. So some of your dreams might never come true but that should never stop you from having a dream.
Since childhood I have always loved to strum on a guitar. There was something about the sounds that was soothing and when I lost myself in the music I forgot about any problems I might have had. Music is therapy music has a lot of power whether you are strumming a guitar or listening to it.
I told about riding across the USA from San Francisco to New York and about some of the people I met. In ending I told them never give up.
As you can see one of my dreams did come. Remember to always follow your dream.
|How did I get the idea of building a guitar? From an artists conception that was used on an album of motorcycle songs I wrote and recorded called Sing Out For Motorcycles. When I saw the album cover for the first time I thought I sure wish I had a guitar like that. That dream came true ten years later when I bought a motorcycle to build a guitar on. After a year of work and some help from my friends I rode my dream across the USA.|
