To Be The Best Dr. B I Can Be
I thought about that. Well, for one, I think as far as big time success as a doctor, I didn’t come up with a cure for cancer, so I would view my mark on the world as pretty modest. As far as books, it delights me that “The Mandolin Case” made a lot of people happy and that my story led some new people to the music art form I love so much. But I assure you Mr. Grisham doesn’t lay awake at night and worry I might overtake him. That doesn’t bother me.
It’s like why I still study the mandolin under Wayne and Darin. (Hey Jel, Darin and I are gonna start on the mando duet CD this month; I hope Wayne will sit in on a cut or two also) I ain’t trying to be them; God only made one of each of us. I have no illusion that I’m gonna be the next star of the mandolin world. I continue on because all I want to be is the best Dr. B I can be, and both my music and writing help me in that quest.
It might not be modern or fancy, but it’s a good enough reason for me, and I guess that’s all that matters.
