Day 30 #HappyGoGrateful - Dan Rivera
Passion energizes us. It makes us feel "alive". The energy created when we're doing what we're passionate about can also be felt by those around us.
I have seen and experienced how passionate Dan Rivera is when it comes to music. By music, I don't just mean singing or playing instruments, but I'm talking about the whole nine yards of music. From singing and playing instruments, musical theories, producing music, listening and learning from all genres whether he likes it or not. He takes what he learned, and........and most importantly, he shares them. Those who know him can testify for that.
You love sharing your knowledge, Dan. You really enjoy making others better, and you do this in your own fashion which I adore :)
It's your no-excuses attitude. You don't take non-sense from people, you're a very practical person, detail oriented, you work hard and so eager to learn something new everyday, and I so admire this from you. Simply, you walk the talk, Dan. There's no better role model than someone who walks the talk.
That is what an amazing person, friend, mentor, and leader you are. Because if it's just your passion, you wouldn't welcome me to your beautiful home those countless times to teach and produce music for me. You wouldn't teach me how to use the program, or even more, give me the CD for my graduation present. You wouldn't send those holiday cards o me and everyone...even when I'm already in Indonesia. You wouldn't be so patient and caring, and you wouldn't helped organize my farewells and created that beautiful poster and video. You wouldn't be doing all that, if it's not because the beautiful individual that you are.
"We don't care what people say, rock 'n roll is here to stay."
You're my rock 'n roll, Dan. Your passion has saved me from loosing mine.
I thank you and I love you.
