All My Lovin'

As I moped around the house today trying to think of something to write, which, since this is largely a blog about artistic pursuit, and I've been sick and not painting, I couldn't think of a single thing to say. Then Reese suggested that we make a little video of me playing a song on the ukulele. These past seven weeks of illness and convalescence have provided both time and opportunity to learn a new trick, the ukulele. Hey, I'll be the first to admit that I can only think of two people in my life who will enjoy seeing this, but whatever. Life is full of risks and new adventures, right? So, before watching, a couple of disclaimers are in order. First of all, my voice is a little wonky because I'm still quite congested and cough-y. And secondly, I'm a newbie on the ukulele. That said, entertaining myself by learning to play has been the best thing EVER about this long bout of sickness. So, with little ado, here's one verse, a mere 36 seconds, of All My Lovin' by the Beatles. Please accept my advanced apologies for the amateur performance.

I love it. I imagine that if if you were sick for a year, you might pick up the cello next!!

How wonderful! Thanks for inspiring us all to stretch out of our boundaries a little.

That was really sweet. I am impressed. You have come along way in 7 weeks. Listening to you sing made me wonder how many songs you sang to your girls as they grew up and how much they probably loved your voice. Thanks for posting and I am just so sorry you are still puny. I had no idea it was lingering so long. You are a persevering soul. Love you....

Aw, Sarah! I love this! I'm behind on my blogs, but glad I finally saw this.

This is so great! You're going to have to play for Carmen and David now . . .

Y'all are so gracious and kind, thanks!

One of my long time friends suggested that I either stay sick for a long time so that I can continue practicing, or get a new hobby...like knitting.
