How about a random post?  
I've been back home for a week now... I can't believe how fast time is flying... I fear summer will pass by too soon... I miss Florida but I don't miss feeling alone there... Here I have people I've known my own life... There I have infinite possibilities and that's awesome but still scary...

I've been busy catching up with family and friends (In a couple of ours I'll get together with my aunt and cousins after SEVEN MONTHS 😱), I had to do a deep clean of the house, even if I covered everything Downton Abbey style. I still need to watch the show, but I guess they deal with that covering everything with white sheets craziness, occasionally... My friends often said to me my job was a modern version of the show but on water... And we used to cover EVERYTHING after every trip, so I'm just assuming they did that too!

I had to buy a guitar the other day because I could not travel with my Taylor... I didn't trust AirFrance enough with my precious baby... I have problems giving them my luggage sometimes, so you can imagine how stressed I was thinking about these guys throwing my guitar around... So here's a photo of me on my terrace, with my new guitar... It sounds beautifully (even when I'm the one playing).

I have to catch up on books as well... I've been reading The Book of Speculation, by Erika Swyler and it's VERY good... I picked it up because I get excited every time I see Erika spelled with a K... Just like my name... And I wish I could share more than just the name with the author since she's so talented... "Unfortunately" I have to read fast, because, in 3 days Aftermath: Life Debt will come out... That's the second book of the saga, but I haven't read the first one because there was no Han, Leia and Luke, so I wasn't interested, so I hope I won't have any trouble understanding what's going on... I'll probably read the first book eventually...

Okay... Enough with the randomness for today. I have a book to read and a family date later... Hope you're weekend is as great as mine!

Good to "see" you! :) That is a really nice photo. I'm so jealous of your guitar and guitar-playing capabilities. I wish I had the patience to learn an instrument. I tried to teach myself guitar back in high school during the height of my Beatles phase. I learned some very basic chords but I didn't keep it up. Though I am very excited that the library is going to hire someone to teach us Ukulele basics LOL.

Do you tend to play songs you know or just fiddle around and write your own melodies?

Thanks :)

Oh I won't be at the songwriter level for a VERY LONG TIME... Probably never... I think you should be able to imagine the music first and then find the notes... I recently read a book about Vivaldi and he was imagining a whole orchestra playing a melody and he was writing it down... And the other day I saw Antony Hopkins (who, apparently, was a composer before changing career) hearing for the first time the Waltz he composed years ago being played by an orchestra and, man that was intense!

I have an ukulele, actually, my husband has an ukulele (in the house we now have 2 guitars and an ukulele, he has one on the yacht and so many in storages all over the place: York, PA - ST Simons Island, GA and Fort Lauderdale FL... SO.MANY.GUITARS!) But I've never played it! A fiend of mine plays it very well!!!
