Sometimes Practice Isn't Enough

Man, I'm going to copy down Kimber's words on a piece of paper and stick it on my wall. Seeing "practice" as "spending time with a friend" is blowing my mind in a very wonderful way (just as her fiddle playing does). Maybe it'll inspire me to pull my own fiddle out again.

I sometimes leave my guitar in the case for weeks. I miss it, make excuses, and don't take the time to take it out to play in a playful way. I try not to make it workful, but.....thanks Stacy.
