I know, I haven’t written in a while, not that anyone would notice, since no one reads this. I will continue to write when I am up to it, and when I can. I have been going through some kind of mid-life crisis. I have taken up the guitar again. I know what everyone thinks, I’m sitting in a corner playing Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell songs. To a certain extent that is very true. There’s nothing I like better than a good folk song, with a good story to tell. These are some of the best kind of songs. Songs that are king. What I have in my mind right now, are the blues. I want nothing more, than to learn my pentatonic scales, and whale on an electric guitar. I feel that would feed my broken down soul. I would like to do this all on a pink paisley fender telecaster and a screaming fender amp. Call it crazy, but on the other hand I call it just getting reacquainted with an old friend. Wish me luck.
I have said this often, and I also know that it is a quote from the movie “City Slickers.” “If you find that one thing, then nothing else matters”. I guess, for some people it is finding that one thing that they are passionate for. You have to have the passion and fire for whatever this one thing is. So much so, that everything else seems small, and not as important. For me those other minumute things, were shopping. I loved to shop, but now I don’t feel the need to. We as human beings, seem to fill up our empty spots in our souls with addictions, such as shopping, food and drugs.
I was lucky enough to revisit an old friend my guitar. I gave it up some 8 years ago, why I won’t go into right now, but it happened. Now that the passion is back for singing and playing, I feel somewhat alive again. I never realilzed it but part of my being and soul has been missing all these years. Now that it is back, as I said other things don’t matter so much. I guess, what I save on shopping, I can put into some new guitars. If someone has a Lavarrie that they don’t need, Ill be willing to take it off your hands.
