Topic: Anticipating 2017
Lots to look forward to in the coming year, even though we had a over a foot of snow dumped on us overnight. In the coming year, I'm looking forward to 3 big things in particular:
1) Guitar Lessons
I just started one lesson per week in October, at Webster's Guitar Academy. Even though I've played for almost 50 years, and have become a very good parrot, I know almost nothing about music theory. He's done some preliminaries, and I've been enjoying what's been taught so far, doing my homework, etc. I'll be re-starting in February, and will see it through as long as I can.
2) New Knee
It's now almost 5 weeks since I had my left knee replaced, and it already has more strength and range-of-motion than before the surgery. This is going to make fly fishing, camping, kayaking, woodworking, work ... heck, everything ... far more enjoyable, accessible, and less painful. Our sport-fishing season opens on April 1st, and I'm looking forward to it more than I have in years.
Our first was born on July 31st, and he's really interacting well now. Loves being played & sang to , and watches both hands on the guitar intently. Our daughter-in-law is learning to play some nursery tunes on the ukulele, and he just loves it. Going to be a great year watching him grow!
What about my fellow Chordians? What are your plans / aspirations / goals for the coming year?
