This post inspired by Ragtag Daily Prompt: Play
Playing music was always front and center in our home.
Whether it be playing a record, a tape or, as years went by, a CD.
But the best playing happened in person.
At the end of one oppressively hot September day in 1988, we huddled around our only air conditioner for an impromptu concert. After a long day of yard work.
The 6 year old playing my old guitar from childhood.
The 10 month old plucking strings on his daddy’s guitar.
And the daddy playing, singing and offering advice on note fingering.
This trio played together many times over the years.
Guitar. Flute. Recorder. Clarinet.
