The parlor with the mahogany top is really shaping up well.  I sat and pondered (yes, I ponder) last night and seriously questioned how all this came about.  How did I get to the point where I could actually construct a thing as nice to look at as this.  And, which will eventually sound (approximately) what I want it to sound like.  My sister, Cyndy, embarked upon a serious artistic journey wherein she has produced art that surprised me.  Surprised, because I never thought of us (myself and my sisters) as possessing quality artistic capabilities.  But there she went, creating and putting out stuff that I had no clue where it came from.  Whatever that muse was that was in my sister I think lives, partially, in me too.  I don’t claim to have one tenth of the artistic talent of my sister, but I think whatever it was that gave her that gift, rubbed off on me.

So, here’s what I was looking at when I had this self indulgent moment of pride in what I’m creating.
