the guitar

today i had another guitar lesson   i always have to play what i practice for the instructor  i always get nervous   and today he played with me on one of the songs   i was draggin' , just a little, while he kept up the beat   i was actually enjoying what he was playin so much i couldn't focus on what i was doin'   but i'll do better the next time   he added some more notes and strands of songs to play, plus he added 'chords'   chords are playin more than one note at a time, a whole string of them so to speak all at once   i'm so excited about learning the guitar, yet i wonder if i can do it each time i come out with my new lessons to practice    i'll be fine and i'm doin' fine for the most part, but God playin in front of Ken (instructor) i just freeze....lol

in the meantime, i'm reminded i'll be in Disney a month from now   i'm anxious to see the kids, ages 2-6yrs old    i haven't met the youngest yet, but he'll be fun    as long as my sister doesn't treat me like one of the kids, dictator self she is, then her & i will be fine   i think have her grandkids will take care of that....in the meantime, on monday i start Tai Chi    it was recommended i do this first before i do a martial art   they'll get me aligned and strength the muscles i need for a martial art    i may not take a martial art, but at least i'm headed in the right direction for now    plus with my other classes, including motorcycle riding class coming up, i'll be pretty damn busy for awhile   once i return from Disney, i'll be enrolling into school...intially when i retired i didn't know if i could fill the time   now there isn't enough time because i have so many books and so little time    but all is good    i just began The Da Vince Code to insure i complete it before the movie is released   plus i have a whole bunch of other books to read    all in time...

Gosh, you are one busy woman....I don't even know how you fit it all in. I bet you are excited about learning to play guitar. Seems like retirement is agreeing with you.  Anne

Boy you sure are busy lately! That's wonderful. I've always wanted to play the guitar - much more difficult than it looks isn't it? :)  No fair that you're going to Disney! My favorite place on earth. Can you believe i've lived in FL for 4 years now and haven't managed to get back there!?! have fun! Hugs, ~ Lori
