Guitars

A guitar day at the market

There is always some of entertainment and music at the Saturday market. But somehow last week there were only guitars.




The guitar is not my favourite musical instrument, but I love hearing Santana play. So here is Samba Pa Ti.



I finished reading Ruchira Khanna's Voyager's Into The Unknown  Enjoyed the book as it was a nice easy read and it took me back to a time when I visited the Taj Mahal. More than just a story, it has an inspirational theme and brings out some profound life truths. Do read it.

Last week I mentioned that my friend's husband is in hospital.  I don't have an update on that but unfortunately her mother passed away on Monday unexpectedly.  She was a lovely lady, so kind and loving and always smiling . May she be at peace. I also had another aunt pass away last week. Not a great start to 2016 -  3 deaths in the family and my friend's mother the 4th.

There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart.
- Mahatma Gandhi

I hope you had a better week than I did.

    1. Thanks Sanch. I enjoy live music too. My brother used to play the guitar and drums so there was music all day at home. I did piano classes when I was little and regret not pursuing it. I now have a keyboard - trying to learn that.

  9. Sad news, Suzy! My son is a guitarist and when he first left home I really missed the sound of his music. Nowadays it's a treat. :)

    1. Thanks Restlessjo. My brother used to play the guitar and drums. My mother used to play the piano and my daughter used to play the keyboard. So there was music all the time. I'm trying to learn the keyboard now.

  10. Sorry to hear about the loss. It's difficult to deal with the death of loved ones. Mahatma Gandhi's quote is so true, people whom we love stay in our hearts forever. Will add Ruchira Khanna's novel to my wish list, seems to be interesting.
