I have decided, for whatever reason, that I want to learn to play the harmonica. I'm not really sure why, maybe I want my life to be more musical like Harold Crick or maybe I just want a distraction from writing and creating other things. Regardless of the reasons, I ended up buying this harmonica. It's a cheap beginner harmonica but I can already, kindof, play one song. It's very exciting!
It's been awhile since I've learned something new. I mean, sure we learn lessons every day and are always learning from our mistakes and expanding on what we already know, but to have no knowledge of something and now to know a little bit about it is…well, it's thrilling. I'm liking being a beginner. As soon as I have some free time I'm going to take lessons too.
Today felt dismal and I was unenthusiastic about the ordinariness of it, but once I came home and practiced my harmonica I was reminded how easy it can be to turn everything around. Crossing one more thing off the list and creating my happy!
