Fond Farewell

IMG_0549

I recently said a fond farewell to a guitar because I no longer played it. It had beautiful colours, and I loved to look at it every now and then. I liked it. But I didn’t play it. And I didn’t like keeping it in the garage. So I sold it to  a musician who felt he got a good deal on the price, and was very excited to take it home. Much better than keeping it in storage.

Saying farewell does not necessarily mean you don’t like or respect an object for what it is, or what it had meant to you in the past. In fact, letting go can be a sign that you value it enough to give it to someone who can make good use of it.

“If you love it let it go”. This normally applies to butterflies, and to children finding their independence, but it can apply to musical instruments too!!
