What to Let Go?
What do I need to let go? What blocks the muse from using me, from using my instrument? Recently I have been playing a very fine instrument on loan to me from a friend. I am finding that I require less effort to play this guitar. The lightness of this instrument supports my sense of ease and uprightness in my body. I realize in hindsight that I have been making certain accommodations to the guitar that I have been using which have limited my playing.
Do I let go of the old guitar? Let go of the funds to buy this beautiful instrument that I have been dating, teased with a kiss, and am generally falling in love with? Now the answer appears so obvious. The same answer that surfaces again and again - to let go of fear. Always. When to let go? Now!
