i heard him play ~

before we turned the corner, we knew him. his music told us so.. .it was the voice of a familiar friend, the strumming of heartstrings, reminding me that the challenges of yore were overcome, & we can too, its always good enough to start listening to your heart now, today, even if only the four walls have heard the music you've played for some 30 odd years!!!

we met this musician on Saturday, as he played the Mississippi blues, & at 70 years old, he's decided to "let someone other than the four walls hear his playing" he's been sitting in his home working on his talent for 30 years!!!

  1. I love this story. But, it makes me sad, too. Why keep it private for so many years.
