7.29 Music - Whiskey Before Breakfast

Bestest Friend and I are in the middle of a blog project. Each day of the month we will post a picture on a pre-determined theme and write a little something about it. The theme for the twenty-ninth day of each month is "Music."
This is the song that will make me remember this past three months. At every second, he's playing it. He started slowly, one bar at a time, and before I even realized it, he was playing entire lines at full speed. It's amazing watching him develop the skill.
I bought one CD all year long - Taylor Swift's 1989.  But I bought lots of individual songs, mostly to complete my Grand Ole Opry playlist. 
Maybe next year I'll be better. I listen to the radio instead of podcasts. I'll go to more live music events. I'll take a lesson or two in an instrument and become proficient.  I'll make a playlist every month to remind me of the soundtrack of my life.

Or maybe I won't. Music just isn't a priority for me anymore. I want to become a better seamstress, a better teacher, and listen to the entire back catalog of Ask Me Another. I want to see my family regularly, read until midnight, and teach my cat to put her toys in her toybox.

And when music seeps into my life, I want it to mean something, not be just another chore on my list.
To see what Bestest Friend wrote about the theme of the day, check out her blog, Too Legit to Quit.
