Ok – it’s February 1st
and finally time to talk about resolutions.
That’s when I like to think about them.
Try them out.
See if they’ll stick.
See if I am really resolved.
This year, among other things, I wanted to add more music to my days.
I love to sing and make music with others.
I’m on our worship team at church.
I play piano.
I’m a fledgling harp player.
I play guitar but it sits in the case too much.
And I have a violin – I won’t say I play it – yet 🙂
How do I fit them all in a day?
Well I don’t, but I’m working on it.
Because I love music. It gives me deep joy.
On my 50th birthday, my harp playing friend gave me a card that read:
It’s never too late to be the harper you like to be.
That line made me think – what kind of harper would I really like to be?
I knew the answer.
One who plays every day.
Not just the harp – but I play it first since I’m learning and learning takes practice.
But also piano, my dusty guitar,
and maybe even that violin – even though when I practice, my music-loving boys threaten offer to build a sound proof practice room for me. 🙂
So . . .
My 2010 resolution?
I’m playing music ~ every. single. day.
This is my year of music.
There! I’ve said it. It’s out in the open and it feels good.
No over the top goals.
Just music – everyday.
I found some wonderful inspiration online. Mark Pentleton, a beautiful piano player, is also adding more music to his life in 2010.
And he’s sharing it with us – a song a day.
