A drumming student has a long way ahead of him/her until drumming becomes part of his life as breathing is.
A musician is up for a long career before he has a chance to understand what music is all about -
this... words can't tell.
Mastering a new language when you move to a new country takes 10 years.... and a bit....
and it is only words....
and not before another 10 years down the line can one grasp and play with the sense of humour
and subtle nuances that flows off the feather of a native poet.

There is only one ' greatest teacher'.
He teaches everywhere.
He teaches all of us
He teaches without failure every day or night
At any time, always available for those
Who are humble
And arduous enough.

There is only one teacher
Who without failure turns ignorance into genius
Thirst into satiety

And this teacher never failed
And never will

Few are those who saw him
Few are those who met him
Few are those who tried him

Strange....

It is not a religious or spiritual
thing but...
He is everywhere
Around us
Inside us
Before and after us
He has been
And will be
Forever.

And, Oh yes... you know who he is.

Strange though...
His fee is nil
He don't speak, shout or laugh
He don't enforce discipline neither
He don't come up with exams
Judges, awards or sanctions
He is nothing
Outside you
He don't exist

But he is your strength
And your future is all
In the palm of his hand...

There is one only greatest teacher.
He teaches everywhere.
He teaches all of us
He teaches without failure every day or night
At any time, always available for those
Who are humble
And arduous enough.

And even though he teaches without saying a thing
In any languages and to anyone
So nice so merciful
He can disappear or never show up
Or he can be there
At all time.

His name is:

'8 hours a day'

And that is YOU

My friend

Who will bring

To existence

... or not...

The greatest teacher of all…
