This last week has been very trying. My wife had a pretty serious surgery. So I've been spending as much time as I could stand hanging out in the hospital. The surgery went as good as could be expected. She is now back home, but still requires a lot of care.

I haven't been able to play as much as I'd like. The case has been sitting on the couch unlatched. Many times, I walk by it I'll lift the lid and finger pick or strum a couple of measures on the open strings like a Zither. The sonic response is always pleasing to me.

I have made as much quality bonding time as possible. No my fingers aren't bleeding, but the tips have changed a bit, tougher and probably less blood flow.

It's constantly calling to me to be picked up, and it's never far out of my thoughts.

It reminds me of the old saying about newlyweds. For the first year of marriage every time you make love put a penny in a big jar, after the first year take a penny out each time, and you'll never be broke.
