about this item
It is a compelling part of the human condition to want to give back in some way, but many individuals wonder what form their service can and should take. In "Musical Hugs: Succeeding through Serving, One Song at a Time," author Larry Dykstra chronicles his journey from successful businessman ''plutoed'' out of his career to a giver of "musical hugs" who discovers solace, joy, and above all meaning, by bringing the gift of song to severely ill children in the hospital.Accompanied by his beloved guitar, Larry's efforts to discern his path in life in the face of early retirement will appeal to all Baby Boomers who wish to serve and who hope to find their true selves in the process.An open invitation to find your own way to serve others, "Musical Hugs" examines the practice of serving by chronicling the significant life lessons Larry learned as he brought his presence and music to the bedsides of sick children and their caregivers one song at a time.
