Piano, Guitar, Basura and Me 4/2/2021

I like this picture; I like it a lot, It was taken between lessons, I taught. First piano and then guitar did we learn, It’s how I make the money, I earn. It’s a lovely way to spend my day, Listening to my students play. We tap our feet and…

My Two Loves ~ Basura & Guitar 3:28:2021

My students come to learn to play, They must also practice everyday. They cast their eyes down to the ground, When they play and make an awful sound. Did you practice? I ask of them, As they try to play the piece over again. A few minutes here, a few…

I’m busy doing what I’m always doing, looking at music, trying to learn, trying to write, trying to stay one step ahead. A text from a guitar student’s mom, asking if I am home. I always hesitate since the Pandemic started, not much for socializing, my choice. She states that her…

Writing By Candlelight 2:16:21

Standing in my heatless house, silent exception of dripping faucets. Gazing at the darken street, hoping for movement, praying for none. Entangled in huddled embrace, trying to capture and contain human heat. A flickering candle, a beacon of light, a dancer of shadows. Fearful of the next failure hiding around…

Barter Buddies 12 3 2020

Pipe issue in bathroom, resulted in bathroom remodel, oy! I hired a guy I've used before. To be honest, having contractors in the house is exhausting on the pocket book and the spirit. All that was left was some plumbing, I asked a handy friend of mine. He said sure,…

It’s An Emotional Landmine ~ Sunday 11/8/2020 Katrina Curtiss

It’s no secret that if you follow me on any social media platform that I wanted Biden to win. The reasons are many, time is short, so I won’t elaborate. What I am learning on this Sunday is to keep my mouth shut. I mentioned that I liked Kamala Harris…

Kat With Boombox 10:22:2020

There once was a time, oh so long ago, That music was hard to take on the go. First a stereo that sat in the living room, Then a box that played music, it was called Boom. It was big; it was bulky to carry around, With a radio, and…

Anniversaries are usually a time of celebration. A day to remember, something special. A memory lodged forever, dusted off once a year. Anniversaries are sometimes a time of sadness. A day to remember, something lost A memory lodged forever, dusted off once a year, One can feel as it approaches,…
