G.S.Monroe Folk Music - It's about time I started a Blog

Hello Fellow Cigar Box Nation Reader,

I've been lurking around the forum for about a year now learning what I can and giving back when I can, and as this year draws to a close I feel it's about time I started a Blog so that others who find their way to these pages might find some trinket or two worthy of adding to their own personal vault of knowledge.

First off I would like to encourage you to pursue your muse, and take time to listen to the music that is all around us (quoting from the movie August Rush). Music is one of the few joys in life that can so easily be shared with a total stranger and in the process improve everyone's outlook on life. It covers the full spectrum of emotion..... love, hate, sorrow, elation, despair and rapture! Music is a healing salve that can mend the wounds of the heart, it is the Noble Messenger that can convey your deepest heart felt sentiments, and it can uplift the burdened soul into the heavens.

Well, I think that's enough for now, my next Blog entry will be about whatever the "topic of the day" happens to be...

Stay Tuned.
