“A photo of my boy once a week, every week in 2015.”
One of my goals for 2015 is to play my ukulele every day, even if only for fifteen minutes or so. Z bought me a ukulele about a year ago and I played it for a few months before finding myself caught up in work and life. I’ve always wanted to play a stringed instrument and now that Odin is a part of my life, I really feel like I should. I want him to be exposed to music regularly in addition to art and exploration. Z plays guitar much better than he will ever admit and I want to play alongside him! Earlier this week, I brought down the Uke and the banjo and Z grabbed his guitar. We all played together (even though Odin and I sounded pretty awful) and it was so much fun, I hope I can manage to stick with it. I remember being a young teenager and being exposed to live music for the first time when spending a weekend with my friend and her amazing mom (and her main man) who travelled with the renaissance festival. It filled me up and made me want to cry, I was so happy. Every time after that, it’s been the same. Live music is so wonderful and I really want Odin to grow up with that experience!
