I think one of my heroes growing up was a guy that kept me in line whevenever I was getting out of it...it was the dad of one of my friends and he used to alwas show me how to do things and not to avoid having a purpose or rationale. for example, when some of us in our group of friends decided that we would take old junk that we found on the side of the road and smash it up (tvs, radios, busted furniture, etc.) he would show us how to repurpose it instead. by doing this we ended up with some sweet little nick knacks that we would have just thrown away other wise. he gave athourity by being creative!
