Banjo and Cicadas on a Warm Summer Night

Banjo Practice - 18 Jul 2013 (Sandy Boys and Cripple Creek)

Last night I spent some time outside working on my banjo tunes. It was still warm -- Chicago's been hot and muggy this week -- but it felt good to be out of the air conditioning and when I looked up from playing, the sky was quite lovely.

I went inside to get my phone so I could snap a photo and then, too lazy to take it back inside, I turned on the recorder and tucked it in my shirt pocket.

It wasn't until I listened back that I realized how loud the cicadas are this time of year.

Beautiful sky. Loud insect drone. A banjo. Simple things, really, but all pretty wonderful.

I became an accidental banjo student back in June and I absolutely love playing it. Unfortunately, having two banjo people in a house with only one banjo makes things complicated! Does it go to Clifftop with me tomorrow or does it stay home so my husband can have his lesson on Monday? Let's just say -- I can't imagine going a day without playing. : ) Can't wait until I have my own!
