I " have 'G' in my 'DNA'"...Does that denote God, Great or Goddard? All three. :)

"PAN PEOPLE":  Most 'pan people' are scared, insecure, and are afraid to think out of the box to create a much better and bigger box. Most need a dose of risk-management and business courses. Most are clueless of whom they really are thus are incapable of putting value to themselves, and this is because, in Trinidad & Tobago, there isn't significant value placed on the instrument thus, most still act and think consistent to the garbage can and biscuit tin covers. Since in the 1980s, my family and I placed pan alongside the harp, violin or any other sophisticated musical instrument, hence the reason why so many fail to comprehend my upward/moral stance when aligning self with pan.
