Everytime I see a band play or watch some kind of performance... I sit there deciding who I would like to be... the cool tattooed chic on the violin?... the rocking guy on the guitar?... the lead singer with the afro?
Today I attended a morning tea to farewell some friends moving interstate. We all took turns to express how much we love our travelling friends & how much we will miss them. So many great things were said.... but then.... one person... one very talented person picked up his guitar & sang a song he had written!!!! aaahhhh!!! How cool is that?! The song was funny & meaningful, the roomful of people laughed at the witty lyrics & some eyes brimmed with tears.... it was awesome. For a moment I decided that I wanted to be the talented musician with the guitar, singing, making people laugh & cry.... but then I realised that if I was the entertainER, I would miss out on the treat of being entertainED!
Note to self: it is great to enjoy that we are all different, all talented in different ways.
2nd Note to self: If I ever decide to move interstate, I must ask Mr Guitar Hero to write me & dave a song!
