Peaceful – Part 2

Guitar 017a_Painting

Thank-you everyone for your comments on my previous post Peaceful.  I am very grateful for all the comments and support.  I also discovered how diverse and talented all of you are as I got to explore your posts!

This is my view of peaceful…or one of them.  It had been a while since I’ve strummed and picked a few chords.  I took a break for a number of reasons.  Recently I felt a stirring.  I knew I needed to play again.  Whenever I run into certain people they say to me, “Don’t stop singing…please…don’t stop.”  It’s part of who I am…and it is one thing that beings me peace.

I also enjoyed watching my husband as he relaxed and listened.  I know he’s missed this as well.


p. s.  On a different note (no pun intended!) I admit I’m also posting a similar photo to Cathy’s Crochet Corner as the fingerless gloves are a recent creation.   It was fun to test them out while I was playing.  Enjoy!


I've always enjoyed writing and finally decided it was time to blog! As part of my profession I write every day, but I'm now trying to take the time to write creatively. My family and friends have been very encouraging as there is little that is written down in the way of a family chronicle. This is a favorite topic of mine! In addition to family history, I write about life, family, friends and faith. My husband is a full-time parent to our special needs daughter. I’ve explored this topic, too. I also enjoy music, crocheting, reading and relaxing with my family. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer!

    Hi Cathy – Its always nice to find another acoustic guitar player in the blogosphere. I’m another amateur who just enjoys playing for my own enjoyment and occasionally for friends. One of these days I’ll have to post a pic of me with a guitar – thanks for the inspiration.

      Thanks, Scott! I appreciate that last statement as your photos are so amazing! There’s something very pleasant about a sweet acoustic guitar – although admittedly I love to listen to a lot of different styles. Glad you enjoyed it!

    Thank you for your link and read with interest. I still play guitar regularly and play at several local folk clubs nowadays.(It what keeps me sane) All the years I played in bands and listened to pro bands, I now realise that sometimes it is not always the quality that counts. It is actually the personal touch and the effect of the sounds on the small audience and their reactions. And probably knowing their names.Twenty -thirty people watching and applauding means far more than a thousand unknown faces, and moving onto the next venue. Again thank you, it is what all this bloggin etc is all about….

      Hi Gerry. I really understand the sanity statement! I’m also appreciative of the small gathering. I played music in churches over the years. It takes a certain vulnerability – musicians often allow people to see deep parts of themselves. It’s often what causes a connection. Hmmm…some good food for thought here! Thanks!

    When you stop playing and pick it up again, do your fingers need to hurt all over again to create that thick skin ?

    • Cathy G says:

      Hi Smaak. If your fingers lost their calluses then they may be a little bit tender until they come back. I haven’t found it to be too bad. They come back quickly! 🙂

      • Smaaak says:

        I still have new calluses to build, on the sides of my fingers for the Barre ! But I am into the music now, the pain is ignorable !

    Good for you! Keep at it! 🙂
