Music to Soothe the Soul


Today I am coasting on Advil, but I might be able to skip the ibuprofen if only I could sit and listen to my nephew strum his guitar while I knit and sip tea. Unfortunately he lives an hour away. The guy's still learning, but he takes it seriously (as you can see by his serious guitar face). When he was just a little guy, he loved to take front stage at every family function and sing songs aplenty. I love that he has the confidence to do that still. Maybe we just make an excellent audience. T got me thinking today about all the little tots in our lives and what they'll be up to years from now. I think I'm destined to be the aunt of a famous muscian. I promise to keep doing what I do best - chilling in the front row with my knitting and a cup of tea, of course.

I always thought it would be fun to learn the guitar but sadly I only got as far as the trumpet & sax

My hubby plays and I try to pick it up now and then but I can say I'm a better knitter than a guitarist.

He'll need nice knitted hats and scarfs to perform in. =)

Love the serious guitar face. And there's nothing to build that confidence like a loving audience to support him!

I have a guitar - wish I knew how to play!

He's so serious playing that guitar!
