Personal History

Samuel was a down-and-out blues singer, living off of a variety of odd jobs in his hometown of Lafayette, Louisiana. Lamenting his misfortunes one day in a dive on the city's outskirts, he found himself enraptured by a beautiful woman in a scarlet dress who was hanging on his every word. Progressing from his misfortunes to his dreams, the woman only interrupted to coo encouragement or praise at him. When he finally confessed his desire to be what he termed a 'true bluesman', the woman's eyes lit up and she asked him what he would give to make it happen.

"Anything," he said.
