Where a picture really does speak a thousand words.
Good weekends all ......
Same to you Helen! 🦋🎉✍️
Figured I’d get on an early flight, and bring cellist Caitlin Tarver to play some tunes on her cello. Cool young lady— hot player. Great prompt today. You hosting Helen — or Carrie. Whichever — thank you!
I look forward to reading it Rob! Glad you like it and glad you are here! You and Helen are early birds...or maybe true night owls.LOL
Night owls. We hardly ever go to bed or sleep until around midnight. Nice picture for us, Mrs. Jim plays the viola, did for years in a couple of church orchestras. She went back to college after she retired to learn and to study French, three semesters of both. She's been retired 22 years now, and is glad she didn't choose the cello as it would have been too hard physically for a LOL, little old lady, to drag around. I've had two semesters of class piano, my lessons were free as a wellness project where I worked, at the college.Again, Carrie. thanks for the nice inspirational photo prompt. I'd like to do it a little bit of justice. I'll try to sleep in first...
Hey there night owl Jim! A lovely background on things for your wife. She sounds like an amazing lady! Glad you find the image inspiring. I look forward to seeing the different directions it takes people.
Hi Carrie, Helen, Jim — generally my head hits the pillow gently here in the PacNW as the clock swings round toward 3:00 AM. Have always been a night owl, further exacerbated by the insomnia I have developed — I believe initially implanted by decades of singing and playing music into the early AM’s, in bars and nightclubs. This was followed by a professional career that enabled me to “sleep in”. I fully come alive creatively between 10PM and 3AM — can’t help it!
You could write a poetic story about your life I am sure Rob. Sounds utterly fascinating! I am a true early bird. I fall asleep early and wake before the crack of dawn. I can't help it either. LOL
hi Carrie - I ummed and ahhed with this one - not so much musically as wondering if the Muse could come up with something - in the end she did- just before bedtime so back tomorrow to read others
I look forward to reading it Laura! See you tomorrow, and have a great weekend!
Such a beautiful image. It made me think of my Carrie playing her cello.
Glad you like it Susie! Carrie is so talented. I would love to hear that!
Something about the poetic process--the digging down, I suppose--leaves me with the lowdown blues sometimes. Anyway, mine is up, and happy weekend everyone.
I can relate to that deeply my friend! Heading to read yours now.
