Tripping to Toledo
I tripped to Toledo
and carried home another harp
to weave a tapestry of trying
to make music
with the strings of my heart.

When it Doesn’t Feel Like Home, and it’s Time to Give Up
In the stillness,
My new harp teacher is Denise Grupp-Verbon, member of the Tapestry and mother of The Harp Gathering. I told her I feel way more at home in a gathering of writers than musicians, but still she thinks I might be teachable. I brought home a “foster harp” and will drive to Toledo once a month for lessons. We’ll FaceTime in between. I committed to do this for six months.
Question: Have you ever given something up only to try again? How’d that work out?
Give me your lantern and compass, give me a map,
So I can find my way to the sacred mountain,
to the place of your presence, To enter the place of worship,
meet my exuberant God,
Sing my thanks with a harp,
magnificent God, my God. ~Psalm 43:3 (Message)
