103/366 strum

The little dude received a “real” (kid-sized) guitar last December. He loves it. When he picks it up, he switches from a four year old whirling tornado to a serene—almost sedate—and philosophical musician, composing original works as they come to him. He came out playing this morning, strumming a peaceful melody for me while I packed his lunch. I told him his song was beautiful. He closed his eyes, bowed his head and whispered, “Thank you.”

Wouldn't it have been a hoot if he'd said, "Thank you. Thank you very much." You know, in his best Elvis voice.

Yes, except he doesn't know who Elvis is. His style is more Kurt Cobain or Thom Yorke (Radiohead). :)
