The legacy of music

If you play a musical instrument, even if you don't play as well as you think you can, pass this gift/skill onto your children.

Music embeds itself in our hearts and memories, and so if you teach your children, or grandchildren, how to play a musical instrument, your legacy lives on whenever they pick up the instrument. It's a deep, profound and long-lasting connection.

This week, all week, we celebrate Street Music, the brainchild of the S-R's own Doug Clark. All over downtown, from noon to 1, musicians will be playing on nearly every street corner. And in the Garland district, too.

Near the Olive Garden restaurant today, I passed by Spokesman-Review photographer Jesse Tinsley and sons, playing music together, as shown in this photo. Wish you could hear them.

Beautiful, bold, a family legacy in the making.
