ok, nevermind! and harpsJune 5, 2009
So, I’m just bursting with ideas to post about! all random of course…
I’m all happy,happy now that my little kite is back. 🙂
let’s see, I was reminded of a cool story! I’ll elaborate from the truth since I wasn’t there, but based on what I’ve been told and my imaginations filling in, here’s what happened.
A friend of mine, let’s call her Ethel, was walking through a hospital lobby…. NO, she was coming down the escalator into the lobby when she saw sunlight streaming onto a harp player playing the most lovely harp music and the beauty really struck her.
So, she wandered near the harpist and waited for an opportunity to introduce herself and offer compliments. The harpist’s first words out of her mouth:
“There are no coincidences. You were meant to come meet me. Are you musical?”
My friend Ethel (not her real name) says, “Well, yes, I love to sing. But also, many years ago, I took harp lessons. It was fun.”
And the harp lady says,
“You must pick it back up. You must buy a harp. I recommend a teach-yourself-how-to-play course, blah-blah-blah. I am so busy I have to turn down opportunities – – money-making opportunities! There’s a reason we have met. Here’s my card. Call me when you’re ready.”
And My-Friend-Ethel-Not-Her-Real-Name is just giddy, GIDDY! with excitement.
Well, not really, because I have to poke a bit of fun at Ethel. She’s telling me this story, right and comes to the part about “There are no coincidences” and she says “ya know, I just looked at her cautiously and go ‘uh huh’ ”
YEA, RIGHT! Ethel eats this shit up. I can sense her squealing with delight.
(and I’m giddy! My kite is back!!!)
