Everybody's got a right to their dream

"Wants to play violin like Miles plays trumpet."

That is an excellent (if, strictly speaking, unattainable) life goal to have. Infinitely better than any of those answers you whipped up during a job interview after being asked where you see yourself in five years.

I'm quoting Los Altos jazz musician Marty Honda, who plays violin and bass, and is scheduled to host a "Community Jazz Jam" this Saturday evening at the Red Rock cafe in downtown Mountain View. I'm betting he sounds better in person than on my tinny headphones.
