If I could finish college and teach children to love music as much as I do and watch it impact their lives the way it changed mine.

If I could fall in love and get married once and forever.

If I could have a daughter, and teach her to love herself and watch her grow into a beautiful, strong, independent woman.

If I could travel the world.

If I could write a book.

If I could have those things, I would be content.

I don't need a huge house, three cars, or a condo overlooking Lake Michigan or Central Park.

I don't need a lot of money, just enough to have a home, raise my family, and travel. Money doesn't buy happiness, it breeds misery.

I don't need Florida State to win the national championship every year, or the Giants to win every super bowl, but it would be nice once in a while.

There are a lot of things I don't need.

But if I could have those things, a partner who loves me, three children, a cat, to teach music, and have the means to travel, that's all I need. And that's all I want.

"Money breeds misery, can be very true.

I wish you all you hope for. I bet you will attain all!

You sound very much like me, but only trade your book-writing for me to have a successful musical produced and we'd be about even.

And I love our cat! Maybe you can get one of those now?
