  • Son’s lack of fear displays his courage in an audition

    “I need to borrow your guitar, Dad.”  That was the request of my 8-year old last week. “I’m trying out for the spring talent showcase.”

    I had to interject and remind him that he does not know how to play the guitar — never had a lesson.

    He informed me that he was going to sing a song and also play it on guitar. I didn’t like the idea of sending him to school with my guitar, especially since he doesn’t know how to play guitar.
