Thoughts on Music and My New Mandolin

I just bought  a mandolin.  Spruce on the top, maple on the bottom.   When a friend lent me one I fell in love with it.  I liked the old fashion sound, the elegant feel, and that it sat so nicely on my lap, like a beloved dog. When I put it up for the day, it rests next to my small collection of flutes and guitars from around the world.

Music has always been magical for me. And now I find instruments are as well. Sentient beings with voices and potential, nudging me to pick them up, to hold them, to find within them something that hasn't been released.
