- Real Name
And Valeri I am so sad to hear that the guitar is not salvagable! I think that adding the playing of music to your creativity bow would have been amazing ... and could possibly have given you more inspiration for other art forms. I love the latest image you posted.
When I was much younger, and before my vision issue surfaced, I played a lot of rugby. In all my years of playing rugby I broke every single finger (except the little finger on my left hand) so I think guitar playing is probably out of the question. I can still however wield a mean drum stick on Guitar Hero (in easy mode)! and and
We can find other outlets for our musical passions! Mine is currently listening to the blues (Joe Bonamassa in particular) while working on images. His playing inspires me.
PS: I also dislocated my neck, cracked a few ribs, broken jaw and ... erm ... a few toes too! I actually should have taken the first few injuries as a sign that rugby was not for me.
I was sad for a few minutes, but then I realized that it wasn't all that bad. Now I can take this beauty with me on photo shoots with out worrying about damage. And it is the PERFECT photo guitar. Its shorter, so fits in frame perfect for iphoneography. it edits like a dream. It sparkles in the sun... lol. So its not a total loss. And I've got a guitar dad, so I'll eventually get hooked up with a new one for the kiddos, just a matter of when. Both the other two were gifted to my son by my dad. The first was a joint gift between us and my dad and the other one, the bass was all my dad. He went and gifted each one of his older grandchildren with a serious guitar. All the grandkids play. I think it just skipped a generation, lol. Well all but my youngest because they only 8 (twins) and 6, but they want to real bad. We could start our own band!! That's it! I don't have to play, I can be the crazy stage mom!!! I can so see it!!! BWAHAHAHA
Wow!! rugby scares me. I break toes just walking down the hallway! LOL My dad has broken every finger too. Working on cars. We joke that all he has to do is pop the hood and a finger breaks. he is still playing music strong! He actually just hooked up with some older guys in his town to start doing gigs again. I'm super excited about this as he hasn't played in a group in years. So don't count your self out! You never know what you can push your self to do, the mind is an amazingly adjustable thing. It finds ways to adapt and accomplish. I have to remind my self of that quite often! My nature isn't to give up, but my body throws in far to many obstacles that I find myself tired of battle. So I tell myself every day "Hope renew my strength" I will eventually have it tattooed on my wrist as a permanent reminder, visual. Looking forward to that day.
