Music is the soundtrack of our lives

“Music is the soundtrack of our lives.” – Dick Clark (or Berry Gordy, depending on who you believe said it first).

Ever since I can remember, music has been in my life. My father could pick up any instrument and figure out how to play it. He was my first guitar teacher.

Music kept me sane when I thought I would go insane living with my mother.

Lately I’ve been toying with the idea to pick up the guitar again. I haven’t played in quite a while. The guitar you see pictured here belongs to one of my son’s friends. Ever since he bought it I’ve coveted it! I would see it hanging on the wall and just drool. It has an amazing tone and it’s also amped!

The other day, I asked my son if I could borrow it and he said yes. Now I need to cut my nails and have new strings put on it!

I’ve gotten away from listening to music too in the last few years. I have no idea why, but lately that’s changed.

I downloaded some music on impulse. Paul McCartney’s NEW, Herb Alpert & Lani Hall’s Steppin’ Out and Earl Klugh’s HandPicked.  I had never heard of Earl Klugh, but when I listened to a sample, I immediately downloaded it.  I was in tears by the time I got to the second song.

“Music is the soundtrack of our lives.”

I don’t know what God has planned for me, but I think I’m about to embark on a new soundtrack.
