from darkness to sight

As a teenager, Ming fought valiantly to escape one of history’s darkest eras — China’s Cultural Revolution — during which millions of innocent youth were deported to remote areas to face a life sentence of poverty and hard labor. He eventually made his way to the U.S. with $50 in his pocket, where against all odds, he later earned a PhD in laser physics and graduated with the highest honors from Harvard Medical School and MIT. To date, Dr. Wang has performed over 55,000 eye procedures including on over 4,000 physicians. He has published 9 textbooks, holds several U.S. patents, and performed the world’s first laser artificial cornea implantation.

In full disclosure, I am becoming soft in my old age. Some of that is my body composition (see below about breakfast), but I am also growing sentimental and sappy. November makes me have all the feels, and I realize how grateful I am these days. I work in an industry where people tell me that print is dying. In fact, Nashville Lifestyles just turned 20 years old and we are stronger than ever: more subscribers, more social media followers, more event attendees than we have ever had. This makes me incredibly proud, and also very thankful to our wonderful team (almost completely pictured above). Without them, none of this would be possible, and for this year’s Thanksgiving I am indebted to them, their hard work, and dedication. Speaking of becoming soft, so…

“Non-traditional” is an understatement for Nashville Symphony Music Director Giancarlo Guerrero. Son to non-musical parents displaced by the Nicaraguan Revolution of the 1970s, the 50-year-old spent his late childhood in Costa Rica before moving to Texas in high school, where, to meet friends, his mother forced him into the drum line of the marching band. After a thorough education and stints with symphonies in Minneapolis and Eugene, Oregon, he was wooed to Nashville in September 2009 for his radical vision of what classical music is and what it can be. After 10 years at the helm, the six-time Grammy-winner continues to innovate and evangelize for a traditional art form in a modern era. Joining Musical Forces: While many symphonies represent the pinnacle of musicianship in their communities, Guerrero knew he had…
