    Music was a big part of my childhood. I remember distinctly trying (and failing) to sing the words to Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire” at four years old. I remember evenings filled with the sounds of Jackson Browne, Elton John, Genesis, Asia, Boston, James Taylor, Carole King, and other music that makes me sound really old. I didn’t realize it until later, but the music I listened to as a kid was totally undergirded by the sound inventions of the Beatles.

Time off from work? I’ll take it! Family and friends?
