Well said, Chris. My main takeaway: Even the stuff we're passionate about often requires hard work. And the hard work makes it all the more worthwhile.

Willie Nelson also knows social
Willie's Facebook page recently asked fans to send in pics of their dogs dressed up like Willie. Now that's viral.

Live music works its magic
Willie was too authentic to stay inside Nashville's sequinned splendor. It's good to hear that his resonate baritone is still worth going to. Shortly after 9/11, I went to a James Taylor concert, where you wondered why, in a fractious, driven-to-violence world, there couldn't be a James Taylor time-out for everyone. It was a momentary return to a sanity.

danielcawrey, I don't think many of would make it to 81 following the Willie Nelson health regimen, but I think you're onto one piece we can tap into, staying active and engaged.
