Good afternoon! This is usually a morning thing, but I was summoned. Left the coffee on, so I have one more cup to drink while I write this. Being a morning thing, it also goes with a couple cups of Morning Joe.
Spent a little time this morning at Monster Pawn. Got a friend who works there. He had a guitar for me to see. It was an Epiphone, designed after a Gibson ES-335. The more I played it the more I wanted it. Not something I need- got 7 guitars now, including a Gretsch that's very similar. But still. Decisions, decisions..
Got my exercise in yesterday, which will tide me over for a day or two. When you get older, it's important to maintain some kind of exercise regimen. Also, this is the first time since turning 30 that I've had a flat stomach and I'd like to keep it that way. So it feeds itself once you start to see results. Never wanting to see that gut on me ever again seems to propel me..
My other morning ritual, besides writing this drivel, is Lumosity. Gotta do that as well, or the day just won't seem right. Get my neuroscience on..I'm signed up with them, so I get a Training Package every day consisting of five different games, each designed to develop a specific cognitive skill- like Memory, Problem Solving, Math. That kinda stuff.
I'm hoping, after all is said and done, to get some quality time in with the guitar. Still working on those skills as well. I use a digital camera for some of my practicing, and if something seems to work, I like to share it on my YouTube page. But you already knew that if you've ever read my posts. And if you never have, well here's the link.
That's all I've got for now. This is the 17th anniversary of 9/11, a horrific day in our nation's history. This generation's Pearl Harbor. A day of remembrance. I couldn't close this out without some mention of today's significance.
Thanks for reading. Happy Tuesday to you. I'm gone. More later.
