Are you too old to learn the guitar? I am ashamed to say that for a nano second I thought my husband was too old for the guitar. NO WAY. I WAS HAVING AN AARP MOMENT. We are convinced that you are not too old to be creative, to learn to share your learning.
Sure he has been the main person who has taught me about creativity. Probably because he is an Artist, Teacher and Carpenter I am always amazed at how much he knows. So why was I amazed that he wanted to learn the guitar for that crazy nano second? Probably fell into the trap that so many fall into of believing the lie about age and new opportunities.
So once he decided to learn the guitar we put up a blog called Midlife Guitar to be a place where he could keep things we come across related to the guitar. Meanwhile, dispite his insane schedule he still practices and promises that he will soon play the blues for me. And when he does that I will sing!!!! Do I sing the blues now? Nope, but sure can learn.
So this is somewhat of a ramble inspired by an article I read by Malcolm Gladwell in the New Yorker about aging and creativity. But tell me, all that are reading this, are you learning something new and creative?
