“Ha ha ha”, my friend guffawed. “You are so funny, you should be a standup comic”

That set me thinking.

Should I? I did enjoy making others laugh. It always gave me a thrill. Much more than what I do now.

But, how to tell Dad?

He would be heart broken.

I was the sixth generation musician in our musical family. My dad was my Guru. We perform together and now we have built up a reputation.

Can I break away from my legacy’s shadow? What about tradition?

“Dad…….” I said hesitatingly.

“I know what you want to say, son. Go ahead my boy. Find your path”
