Once upon a time, I bought a guitar believing that I might actually be able to learn how to play it. I didn't but, I was so enamored of it's shape that I was compelled to carve the lively, funky stand seen in this photo. Years went by. A dear friend asked if I would like to give learning guitar a try once more. I jumped at his kind offer and became addicted. Learning guitar introduced me to multitudes of musicians and many aspects of my life have been forever transformed in the process. If it were not for this stand, carved at a time when I didn't know a note, my life would be very different.
