A Note From
Singing once again...
I have this thing with guitars, especially old ones. When I hold one, I hold it as a friend. It has the potential to make beautiful music and touch the hearts of many.
I think of the different people that might have played it from its birth and the songs that have resonated within its walls. I look it over and see it’s weathered condition, the dents, dust and scars.
Very often they are abandoned to a closet, not to be seen or used for years.
Recently, I had one such guitar placed in front of me at an event. A dear friend brought it out, something she has had for many years. The guitar case was broken and torn. This beautiful six string classical guitar was reduced to only three old strings that were loose and worn. Virtually, unplayable.
A quick trip to the music store and some gentle restringing brought new life to that old guitar. I tuned it up and yes, it was able to sing once again!
I’m sure it was quite thankful to have a voice again. To sing and bring comfort to others in the future.
A stand was even purchased so that it would not have to be returned and forgotten to that old broken case.
Now it could sit proudly in the room, easily presenting its gift of music bringing joy to all.
That's why we live.
