Practice makes perfect if we keep on practising

Last night I attended my eldest grandson’s birthday party and had the pleasure of listening to his younger brother and sister play a few tunes on their clarinets.   How they have improved!   It seems like only yesterday little Caty was playing of a ‘recorder’ at school, now she’s quite accomplished and can even knock out a tune in concert with her elder brother.

And as for Cameron, her elder brother…well…he’s become so good that at seventeen he’s off to perform with an Sydney orchestera which is going to perform in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.   He’s becoming really proficient and it seems there is no heights to which he cannot rise as a concert saxophonist and clarinet player.   Marvellous!   

Of course, they’ve both worked hard and regularly in practice and that is, of course, the so-called ‘secret of success.’  Dint of application and never ever giving up, is what brings the rewards.  

I wish them both well.


About Tom Ware

I'm into speaking to audiences. My particular forte is telling stories. Morevover, I've addressed over 750 audiences and in excess of 40,000 people during the past eighteen years - excluding those I've addressed in my Toastmasters clubs. Additionally, I've presented classes to adults on Metaphysics and Spirituality (non sectarian) and Popular Psychology between 2001 and 2008. I'm an avid writer, been at it for forty-five years. Speaking is a passion, of course, as mentioned above. I started in 1972 with Toastmasters. My speciality is Storytelling and some years ago people began to flatter me with the titles: Prince of Storytellers, and Master Storyteller. Also, Tusitala Tom (Tusitala means Storyteller in Polynesian) I am also into 'serious' meditation (Vipassana as taught by S N Goenka) Started that in 1986. Additionally, I'm an Automatic Writing practioner and have been able to 'channel' for over forty years. Bit about me. Born in London UK and migrated to Australia in 1951. Started my first job day after my fifteenth birthday in that year. I've been a postal worker, sailor, aviation air-ground man, overseas telegraph operator. I've worked for an electrical power-supply company, been a truck driver, a foundry labourer, laboratory assistant, a police radio operator, and office worker - even an Antarctic expeditioner. Worked and lived in a number of countries, but am now 'retired' and enjoying life - probably as never before. I've been married - yes to the same woman! - for fifty-three years and have three grown up children and four grandchildren.
