I don't know why, but I haven't even picked up my guitar in almost 2 weeks. I was depressed the last 4 days also, that may be it. I'm getting over the depression now, but I still don't really feel like playing. This happens about once a year. Most of the time I am a happy go lucky person, but lately it's been raining all month and I have been feeling rather down about my life. It seems like the older I get, grayer and balder and I get rather depressed about ageing and things. I look in the mirror and it's a stranger I'm looking at, not the vibrant young man I once was .....
I love life and find it very interesting! As you know every subject with me can become a hobby more or less, that's why I ask so many questions. Curiosity is my middle name. Lately though I've been feeling old, useless, stupid, etc. I'm 44, is that old? I feel like a young man trapped in an old man's body. Getting old sucks, but I guess it happens to us all.
One thing in this humbling experience of losing my hair and going gray is that I realize that I can't judge people by their age anymore. No longer do I say "Oh that's just some old guy or old lady!" No, that's a man or a woman that is getting older just like we all are! My 92 year old grandmother inside was the same old 25 year old girl, but her body had aged! We have to remember that!
Young people don't realize that the person they're referring to as "old" will be them someday! And that someday will come sooner than later! 20 years ago I was 24 and my whole life was ahead of me! I was excited and care free, but in an instant 20 years went by and I am now an old man!
wasted on the young! When I was young my father used to shake his head when I got depressed and say "Put your head up son, you got the world by the b#!@!". I never realized it then, but now I realize what my father said was correct!
Life is beautiful and wonderful, but it goes by so quick! Enjoy every minute of it and never take it for granted!
Heck I might even play a few pieces right now!
Peace and love to all,
