‘In one way or another, I’ve always suffered. I didn’t know why, exactly.
But I do know that I’m not so scared of suffering now.

I feeI more than I’ve ever felt, and I’ve found someone to feel with, to pIay with, to love, in a way that feels right for me.

I hope he knows that I can see that he suffers too, and that I want to love him.’

Each cut, each scar, each burn, a different mood or time.
I told him what the first one was.
I told him where the second one came from.
I remembered them all.

And for the first time in my life, I felt beautiful.
Finally part of the earth.
I touched the soil and he loved me back.

~Secretary Movie~

I have learned a lot about myself over the years, a lot of scary stuff and I have definitely earned a lot of battle scars. This movie though, Secretary, it speaks my soul in a way that only my journal can. It doesn’t talk about God or what’s right or wrong or the politics around it. It is sensual and full of the broken-raw emotion that we call love.

I am in love. I have been for over 2 years. I struggle a lot with needing because when he isn’t there I feel downright lost. Yet, I have only cut myself once since we started, maybe because he forbid it, or maybe because in his telling me “no” I found a freedom to embrace my emotions in a way that I never was able to do.

I am definitely a multi-faceted soul and I feel like I am always in this state of self-discovery and I also find that it is through the love I have that opens me up to know myself.

The quote above comes from the movie and really, I could quote the whole film. I am not sure who the writer is but I think it is clear that they are very familiar with the feelings of being different, scared, scarred and broken.

The website overview of this guitar says:

A sweet guitar for a very affordable price!

You don’t have to spend a fortune to own a great sounding guitar. Just score a Dean tradition AK48 dreadnought. With at spruce top and mahogany back and sides, it delivers great tone. Its rosewood fingerboard and comfortable neck makes it easy to play, and quality sealed tuners stay in tune to keep your sound sweet. Choose a hip transparent finish and look cool on the street or on the stage. Includes case.

I love the look of the ak 48 guitar and I am excited to be posting about it. It is so difficult to find pretty and a decent price and this guitar hits both points really well. This is an acoustic guitar offered to us by Musicians Friend.

The holidays are coming up pretty quickly and this is a great place to start your shopping for the budding musician in your life. Don’t forget to pick up some lesson guides while choosing your instrument!

If you are a guitar player you need a shoulder strap pad so it isn’t cutting in on you while you are up on stage or jamming in your living room with friends. This specific pad contains gel so it molds to your body, has a contoured shape to fit your shoulder, attaches with velcro and is easy to move from one strap to another. Highly recommended for anyone who plays with a strap!
