Mark Goffeney was born in 1969 with no arms. His father brought home an old guitar he found in a garbage dump when Mark was nine . . . and you can see what he’s done with it. Homer (my dog) and I came upon him playing for tips in Balboa Park today — and doing quite well, I might add. Next time you think you’re not up to the challenge, that the cards are stacked against you, that you just can’t make it, think of Mark; and then get up and try again.
