    Here's part of the lyrics to a song that will describe the situation most will find themselves in.

    He kept dreaming
    That someday he'd
    be that star
    (dreaming.....a superstar)
    but he didn't get far
    he sure found out the hard way that
    dreams don't always come true
    So he pawned all his hopes and even
    sold his car
    Bought a one way ticket back to the
    life he once knew.

    Gladys Knight and the Pips

    I must admit that there's nothing wrong to be a star dreamer but the problem is that the chance is very slim. Even when you are selected into the academy, it doesn't mean that you can become a star. I happened to see a TV program in which a singer said that there are 300,000 "contest singers" every year (in China). I think that all these contest singers are qualified to be singers but only the best among the best are selected. The chance is just too slim.

    But if you don't participate, you get absolutely zero chance.

    I'm the "throwing it to the wall and see if it sticks" kind of a guy. Chase your dreams, no matter how crazy they are. Even if it is one out of a million chances, at least you get a chance. And who says you won't be the one?! You get NO chance if you don't try.

    Saying good bye is heart breaking and i feel for this middle age couple because I used to be away from my wife not as long as this couple but still three to six months at a time depending on the job contracted by my company. The good byes and initial couple of weeks is difficult and this picture brings back some difficult memmories.
