Sunday Stills....Music










Music ruled my life until I started farming. Always in some band, playing some instrument, badly, but playing it, in some high school auditorium or a bar or club somewhere...or practicing in some cellar or garage or any place that would put up with all that noise....this guitar has taken me many places since I bought it second hand for $75 a very long time ago. The fiddle was my mama's and now belongs to Becky. The CD was a delightful surprise from my brother that made my day and the several days since when I have listened to it. Thanks!



For more Sunday Stills......http://sundaystills.wordpress.com/2012/09/16/sunday-stills-the-next-challenge-music/

I always wanted to be able to play violin, but it wasn't meant to be. I can't play, but I do love to dance to music!

Cathy said...

Wow.
Marianne. Now I'm really blown away.
Anyone that can create music from a string instrument . .
and write prose that sings . . next you're going to tell me you can sing, too . . .
Wow.

henri, thanks! It is tied together with string as the latches are kind of sad but it does what it needs to.

Cathy, can't sing, although that doesn't stop me from doing it any way. lol, thanks
