The WordPress Topic of the week is Regret. Admittedly, it wasn’t a topic I really wanted to pursue. The way I see it, why look back? No need to dwell on shoulda’, woulda’, coulda’. I decided a while ago that it was more important to move forward than dwell on the past. Always easier said than done, isn’t it?
A few years ago I made the decision to stop playing music. When I say that I stopped playing, I don’t just mean that I stopped playing publicly; I stopped playing. The music inside me went quiet.
Life was pretty hectic at the time. I needed to balance out a few things. It was hard at first, but I knew it was the right decision. No regrets.
I think there may be times when Al would want to hear me play music and sing a bit more. I did pluck out a few songs recently as you can see in my Peaceful 2 post. Perhaps the fact that I’ve mentioned this a couple of times in posts means it’s time to start exploring this again. Hmmm…ya think?
I know I’ll enjoy reconnecting with old friends…a 12 string and a few six string acoustic guitars. They’ve come along way with me. We’ll make some rich sounds. I suspect it won’t be too much longer. I don’t have the tug to sing into a mike at the moment, at least not right now. No regrets there, either!
