Perfectly Good Guitar

Well, several weeks ago, among my outloud musings (some of these are not just outloud but outlandish), I said to Maryse "Hey, it'd kinda be neat to learn how to play the guitar." She held me to that thought and this weekend got me my belated birthday present - a 6-string Art & Lutherie acoustic guitar. How cool is that? This 55 year-old dude's gonna learn how to play the guitar! She bought me a book of theory and books of songs by Bob Dylan (well natch), Neil Young (of course) and (an impulse choice of mine) Warren Zevon. No John Hiatt this time around.

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
