three on thursday - strike up the band


when did I take this photo?
maybe
 it was last summer 
maybe the summer before that 

I dont remember 
I do know where it was taken
 in front of 
on 
Columbus Avenue 
at one of the summer's 
street festivals

So nosy bloggers want to know
do you now 
or 
did you ever 
play an instrument?

Me?
I really wanted to play piano
my grandfather wanted to buy me a baby grand
my mother, oh so wise, vetoed it
why?
as a child 
she took piano lessons 
and 
she knew me well enough to know 
I would lose interest 
as soon as it became 
a lesson 
vs 
a lark
Oh so wise was my mother

Tell me about your music lessons
