27. It was an acquired taste for me. I'm born in NYC.
My first love is jazz. I understand that there are some who will never grasp it. That's taste, and some of it may be hard wired in us. (One aria limit for opera.)

But there were country groups and some pedal steel players in Greenwich Village. Some are better than others. And occasionally there is something great. It stands on its own.

"I am not a mollusk," said the clam, "I am myself, and myself alone!" Lewis Carrol
