... a slightly smallish, narrower than normal guitar with nylon strings. I've never played the guitar before. My entire life I was a piano player. But lately, every now and then, I've felt the urge to do something new... to feed my brain with new knowledge. My guitar is black with a white line around the edges. It is shaped just beautifully, and I can't take my hands off it.
I've been feeling a bit beside myself lately. With this guitar I brought a welcome change into my life. I sat down last night and learned to play a few chords. My finger tips hurt, but I didn't care.
This morning I decided to put my new knowledge to work and learn to play a song. Only recently did I discover Johnny Cash. Of course I knew his name. But when I heard him sing for the very first time a couple of months ago, his voice went straight to my heart. I love music, and admire every good singer, but his voice is different, so loaded with emotion and darkness. So I'm learning to play and sing this:
I'm almost obsessed... The laundry is sitting in a corner of my living room untouched. I have to play this song, over and over.
Thank you, Johnny Cash for finding me.
