It can be all too easy to let a television be a distraction. Some time ago my wife suggested we make Friday night a night for turning off the TV, putting on some great music, and just listening and talking. Our young son loves it also. So much to discover...
Whenever my little guy wants to play Daddy's piano, I need to remind myself that I have also grown up with a love of music, surrounded by people who supported me, and encouraged me to stick with piano lessons as a boy even when I felt I was being "forced" to learn. With eager young ears reaching out to hear new things, it would be cruel to not indulge him.
I love the picture accompanying this post, of a young boy fascinated by the strings of a guitar. So new, so intriguing, such a source of fascination.
This fascination is something to be indulged, and never forgotten.
