Falling to Pieces

Things were difficult. I would play my guitar and the neck would break. I wasn’t even playing the guitar that hard. The thing is, you can’t nail a neck back on a guitar. You need a new one.

Within two months I went through 33 guitars. I’d used up my savings and maxed out my credit cards. I wanted another guitar, but had no way of acquiring one. I was pretty down in the mouth.

Then I read a fortune cookie which said, “Everything around you will crumble. But that’s what things do. It’s a crumbly world.”

I felt better. I left the restaurant and broke into millions of pieces onto the sidewalk. Each part of me looked back at the other parts. I thought, “I’m a kaleidoscope!!”
