Make your own music.
May 4, 2008
Fun for the whole family! Music-making is Small, right? No impact. Non-disposable. Kinda yesteryear. Husband and I pass hours at a time screaming out The Weight — he does a mean Rick Danko — and The Coasts of High Barbary. Oodles of entertainment.
This past Christmas, my friend Jill organized a recital. A violinist of great training and incredibly good humor, Jill teamed up with an oboist, and together they presented a series of delightful holiday-themed tunes. Oh, and she baked cookies, which we decorated pre-recital. That was cool, too. (ps. Jill: You can bake me cookies again, okay?)
Why don’t people do this all the time? If we don’t own instruments, why don’t we sing? Is this too Small? Too Kumbaya?
