I remember the first time I saw Alvis from my cafe window across the street. He was sitting in the music store looking so gorgeous. It was love at first sight.
After a few days of staring and day dreaming, I decided to be brave and make the first move. As soon as the clock hit 3:00 pm, I put the “Sorry, We Are Closed” sign on the cafe door and ran across the street to meet him. After a cup of coffee and few questions later, I paid the finder’s fee and took him home with me. I knew Alvis and I were going to play beautiful music together for many years to come.
Unfortunately, the music part didn’t happen as I had hoped. My relationship with Alvis was a struggle from the start. I’ve tried self-help books and paid for the counseling of music making experts. But nothing could help my lack of musical harmony with Alvis. In the end, I realized that I’m not very musically inclined. Although disappointed, I still have hope that with patience and time — someday my musical talent will emerge. 😉
