As a junior in high school, I made the auditions for the Southern New England Honors Band on saxophone.
(Yes, I indeed played the saxophone...that happened...)
The conductor was Frank Battisti. A wind conductor I didn't realize at the time was practically a celebrity in the field of wind conducting.
He was a mean guy.
He got results. Though it was probably because we were afraid of public humiliation most of the time.
He said one thing that has stuck with me, decades later.
He shared that he was completing a degree in American history. He said it had always been a passion of is. And when he completed his degree, he would seek to teach high school history as a 74-year-old man.
Someone who's already famous in his field. But still going after something he's passionate about. Easily being the oldest person in all of his classes. And entering a new job at an age most teachers are will into retirement.
Creativity doesn't have an age limit.
College doesn't have an age limit.
Trade school doesn't have an age limit.
Sharing your work doesn't have an age limit.
It's never too late to try something new. And it's never too late to rekindle your dreams once again. It's just a matter of getting started.
