Sunday Scribblings: First Love

DSC00457

The first time I fell in love with music was on a warm evening at twilight. My father had just arrived home from work and the familiar crackle of simmering food that was cooking on the stovetop sounded in my ear, with my mother, the grand master, moving like liquid from one thing to the next. My siblings were here and there. From the family room, the smooth peaceful strumming of the guitar and the harmonizing voices of Simon and Garfunkel floated like mist over me. In perfect unison, my parents started singing the notes, as if they, themselves had written the words.

This is a love we never really have to abandon, isn't it? Your short post filled me. Thank you...

Lovely angle to take with this prompt...(and since I live with a musician, I especially enjoyed it).

Fess up - who WAS your first love? I was waiting for a passionate post. I like this one a lot and it reminded me of the first time I really started to enjoy music.

Miss you!
