A friend of mine shared this on Facebook last night. Such a stunningly beautiful song. In light of today, in light of our world problems, war, famine, refugees… I thought this song was fitting. Please enjoy.
I haven’t posted a video of Anita’s in a long time — She’s got a new one out and I love it. Anita Renfroe has some fashion advice for the ladies out there. All I can say is AMEN. There are just some things you cannot unsee.

If I could sum up the feel that I go for when playing banjo, this picture would be it. It’s Neil Young, circa 1970’s playing sitting quietly under a tree.
People usually make fun of banjo. My thoughts are if Neil Young plays, it must be cool.
Having a broken leg has it’s advantages. I was so busy last year that practicing my banjo was usually an after thought. My teacher can probably attest to that. I’m pretty sure I annoyed the snot out of him many times by showing up without the songs memorized.
I’m presently on week 30 of my “12 week vacation” and I’ve found a lot of time to practice.
Today, I spend a whole lot of my day sitting and picking and learning and I love it.
I especially love the fact that I can pick up my banjo and create something that didn’t exist five minutes ago.
