What a great memory you gave me, Zany. My Aunt Ruby played Old Buttermilk Sky on the piano for me every time I stayed with her when I was 2, 3 and 4. Those were the greatest years! I used to know every word of it and would sing along with her. I hadn't thought of that in years. Hoagy had another good one too, The Old Lamplighter. She taught that one to me as well.
The more we reach and receive the goal, the more we want to reach again.
Love the old songs and it was nice to see Hoagy Carmichael mentioned. I loved his rendition of "Stardust". My Dad's favorite was "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" and I tear when I hear it. He has been gone since 1962 and is sorely missed to this day.
As a guitarist it really is quite incredible to watch, I can't even figure out the chords she's playing, she would have had to figure all that for herself, INCREDIBLE! You won't find an upside down guitar playing book in your music shop
Many people try to learn guitar, 90% of them quit after a short time sighting it hurts my fingers or it's too darn difficult.
She reached for her goal AND grasped it.
Off to watch that again. Thanks for the link.

Glad you liked it. I also play the guitar or rather I played the guitar when I was younger but haven't played much lately. And yes I thought it was amazing to to see her play with the strings upside down.😍
I've just spent an enjoyable hour listening and watching her play, to be inspired is a great way to start your day.
!0 years ago I upped sticks and came to live in Japan, the only possession I brought with me was my guitar.

I think reaching beyond our grasp simply means we should not become complacent with ourselves, but always strive to be our best; to keep learning and seeking answers to the many puzzles life presents us.
Keeping and open mind and an open heart enables us to see and do things that can enrich not only our own life, but possibly the lives of those around us.
