Baby I'm amazed!
Can I just say how much I love music. I am watching the DVR with Oprah and she has talented kids on. Lenny Kravitz just came out and is jamming with a teen, like they have played together for years. How do they do that? He just gave the kid a signed guitar, what a great gift, what a great talent. I am one of those people that God did not grant the gift of music to. My gift is my creative brain/mind and hands, but he did give me the gift of appreciation. I appreciate music and I am not picky, I love Opera to some Rap and everything in between. I love the twang of the Hillbilly music my dad loved, I secretly love the backwoods country/bluegrass, to the Black Eyed Peas. My music collection is eclectic, I love yodeling, and if I hear a Native drum beat my body moves to it. I love Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin. God gave me the ability to turn on electronics, Ipod, stereo, Pandora and appreciate the music of others. Don't get me wrong I have tried my hand at playing an instrument, I envisioned myself playing folk guitar on the porch with my halter top on and ripped jean shorts and wedge sandals. Oh yeah, my long dark hair swishing around as I sang from my heart, when in fact. We had no porch, I had a guitar but baby I could only pick, G-L-O-R-I-A Glllllooooooorrrria, so slow I made it into a waltz. I don't know what a rift is or a bridge unless it's the thing you drive over. My dad could blow a harmonica like a star, I blew spit into it and swelled the reeds and made my tongue raw. I just don't have it. I love to sing and loud, because the rule is if you sing loud you sing well...LOL NOT. So I have the greatest appreciation for music, not mine but for other gifted people that have that talent. I will stick to what I do best fiber. It is my passion. Now to put on some music.
