ALL OF ME
I recently had the pleasure of playing this jazz standard for the composer’s granddaughter, who came in for dinner one night.
She tentatively asked me if I knew the song by Gerald Marks, and when I jokingly replied that most people think John Legend wrote it, she revealed its personal significance to her.
We both laughed, but it is moments like these keep reminding me.
Even when I feel that all of me isn’t enough or equipped to handle my life and livelihood, very often times, it is.
