I bought a nylon-stringed guitar recently, and started playing again. It has been a long while since I've played regularly, I fingerpick, my guitar hero is Chet Atkins. I used to play a lot, but it became associated with many great disappointments and lost dreams. It feels good to play again, and I'm lost back into the mystery again. I like folk music and songs with funny lyrics, as well as hymns.

Lyrics for one song I've played since 1973:

At the boarding house where I lived,
things were strangely growing old;
Long gray hairs upon the butter,
and the bread was green with mold.
When the dog died, we had sausage.
When the cat died, catnip tea.
But when the landlord died I left there,
Spare-ribs were too much for me.
hahaha

I love to play billiards, and I've done some cross-stitch projects once in a while. My wife made her wedding dressing and I hand-sewed the pearl sequin for it.
