Jamming, like life itself, is about playing through your mistakes.
In reading the new Reader's Digest I came across a story by David Hohman. In it it talks about how rejuvenating and relaxing jamming with others is. If you don't know what jamming is, it is when several gather together to play their instruments. I am not musical AT ALL. I wish I was. I got from this how all the stresses of life are put aside and the fun of playing takes over and fills you up with joy. Each day we make mistakes and music is a healing gift that God allows us to enjoy.
Sunday I was talking to someone and we were talking about how we use to be ticklish and how we had mentally hardened our minds to the youthful laughter of that. So, in this Reader's Digest story this popped out at me...
Try something new-especially when you're no longer a kid-and you may have to feel funny before you can have any fun.
He is talking about picking up some instrument and just going for it. Doing it even though you might get laughed at.
I think I just might try something new. I don't know what...I'm thinking. Give me a while to decide. What have you always wanted to try, but didn't because you weren't any good at it or someone made fun of you?
Hmm, I'm still thinking. I know I am good at something. The jury is still out on that. I might take another try at the ukulele!!! YES, I use to play it. Are YOU laughing at me?
The Fresh Find today is this retro-vintage TV tray. I like the baseball one, but they offer several styles!!!
