June writing challenge: Day 7

A skill you’d like to learn

I’m a music lover through and through. I grew up on ABBA with my mother and lots of traditional music with my father.

Then came my stepfather who opened my eyes and ears to 60s and 70s classic. Only then did I realize that musically, I wasn’t born in the right decade. I love rocking out to Heart, Styx, Led Zeppelin, and so on.

Which means that at some point in my life, I’ve wanted to play an instrument. Guitar, bass, and drums were always my favorite but as my tastes in music changed and expanded, I discovered cello.


The deep vibrating sound of it just gets me to my bones whenever I listen to it. I feel like I’m transported to another world and I can just lose myself in it.

Thing is, although I believe you’re never too old to learn new things, I don’t think I could take this on at thirty-five years old. Why? Paaaatience!! I’m such an impatient woman that learning to read music THEN play it? I’d be kidding myself.

But hey, I learned to loom last year. One thing per year is good. I just need to find something for 2017!
