And now, a word from our sponsors...

So, today's post is going to center around one of the many things that I love: music.  I got into music at a young age, and it's one of the few things that I loved as child that I still love today.  OK, you got me, I still love toys...and video games...but that's another story entirely.

I've already mentioned that I'm a musician, but I didn't really go any further than that.  I play a variety of instruments.  I started singing at a very young age, moved on to guitar at around age 9, and played drums for a few years with my last band.  I think I was in fifth grade when I penned my first song lyrics.  Looking back now, they weren't that good.  I expect so much better from myself, lol.  But seriously, words have always been fascinating to me.  God giving me the ability to put them together in a way that makes them meaningful and musical has just made them...well, more meaningful.  The gift He gave me to be able to write music to match those words has brought me so many things.  Some of those things have been great things, and some have been not so great, but the experiences I've lived have shaped me and made me who I am today, so I suppose I'm okay with that.  Truth be told, there are very few things I would change, simply because I believe that changing those things would change ME, and I am very happy with where and who I am.  That's saying something I could not have said five years ago. These days, I spend more time playing for my wife and for myself than for anyone else, but I still love the feeling of playing, and I sometimes miss the stage.  One of these days...for now, I think it's time I sign off.  I'm finding myself getting distracted by other things, so that's my cue, lol.  As I said before, maybe there's no wisdom, but there have assuredly been words!!!
