    today I played the trumpet higher than I ever have before. I was even on pitch with a decent tone.

    I overheard my teenager out in the studio working through a piece on the piano. I asked I could give the melody a try on trumpet. As we played through the piece, we came to a spot where the melody shot up high out of my range. However, I didn't stop or think about it. I just played right along. Quite the thrilling moment. My son was so shocked he said "Wow! Dad." Pretty rare when I can impress my teenager.

    I find it interesting that I still throw mental blocks up. I'm an old guy and I know better but apparently I still get in my own way.
