Old Artie and I have been through a lot together. One of my right pinky keys covered with wear. This key used to be silver and shiny. More to come #clarinet #clarinetist #artieshaw #musician #musicians #musicianlife #amateurphotography #classical #jazz #amateurphotographer #photooftheday #pinky #key #macro #macrolens #macrophotography #music #music #closeup #silverkey

These are the words of 27-year-old Holly Butcher who recently passed away from cancer. The day before she died, she posted a farewell letter. Although the whole letter was nothing short of inspiring, these particular words struck me the most. I see people all the time overcome with envy because their friend has traveled the world, and they’ve only traveled the country. At the risk of sounding pontifical, I’m asking you right now to stop trying to compete with other people’s personal ambitions. Travel the world, raise a family, go to college because YOU want to - not because THEY want to or because you think you SHOULD want to. If YOU want to be great, then be great! But if you don’t, that’s okay too. Don’t be ashamed of WANTING to be average. Hold pride in your mediocrity. We all have our place in life. Mine is right here, in a small town with my husband and little boy - and I couldn’t be more proud. #hollybutcher #hollybutchersletter #cancer #cancersucks #wordsofwisdom #farwell #diedtooyoung #diedtoosoon #beautiful #sad #average #mediocre #fulfilled #fulfillment
