Favorite Quote:
Always be your number one, not someone else's number two.


The cool metal gleams,
Golden as the sky
During sunset,
Searing my vision.

The sounds rise
In a cacophony of voices,
Caressing me gently,
Embracing me lovingly.

My section-mates surround me,
A protective family of bodies;
Annoying me into anger,
Teasing me into fondness, again.

There is no place I’d rather be.
I was born to be here.
The notes run through my veins,
The music feeds my soul.


The author's comments:
This is about my favorite place in the whole world-my band. I play the alto sax, and I love every minute of it-even when my section-mates drive me insane.
