Our instinct is to hold onto things. It starts at about age two and lasts until they wheel us into the nursing home. We have a stack of photographs on our lap, clinging, and all else is gone.

Willis Conover was a rare man. He gave away the best of himself to the whole world, from Boston to Bangkok, and in return the world made him the godfather of jazz for a whole generation.

But, the song he wrote and let go of is a priceless story.

It will come around the middle of the video.

Ecclesiastes 11:1 Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.

What are you clinging to? What if you let go?
