** "This Old Guitar" is a John Denver tune penned to express his gratitude for having something to help get him through lonely or tough times. I have felt the same way about my guitar and piano. Many a day or night, I have sat at either the piano, or outside with my guitar. Music is a good friend and has/does help me when I feel lonely.
I have written before on several of my blogs about one of my friends in England, Rebecca. She was a beautiful woman, so gifted and talented, musically and otherwise. Her husband was our Bishop. Emotionally, Rebecca and I were very close. I loved her, knew from the moment I met her that she would have a huge impact upon my life, but I have never wanted a physical relationship with her. She with me? That is debatable.
She and I were going through a really tough time. I did not even want to be there that night at the pop festival performing because I knew she would be in the audience. But, I did what I said I would do, accompany on my guitar.
The whole time we were performing "I'm Sorry", it felt like it had been written just for Rebecca and me. I know- sounds so corny. But, that is how it felt. And, I knew Rebecca felt the same thing. I could just feel it.
I stopped to see what she wanted, half turned to face her. She told me how beautiful the songs were and what a terrific job I had done. I knew the song had gotten to her, too, that she was feeling the same thing I was feeling, about us trying to figure out how to reconcile our friendship. She was emotional as she talked with me. All I could say to her was "thanks", and then I left.
