QotD: Things I’m Truly Passionate About

What are the things in life that you’re truly passionate about?
Submitted by Jess.

Music in general, acoustic guitar in particular. There is something so organic and intimate about playing music on an acoustic guitar; the combination of wood and steel and the versatility of the instrument, its portability, the wonderful tone that can be teased from the instrument. It’s so cathartic and comforting, and is a loyal partner.

Also, I’m active in many online acoustic guitar forums, including my own, and have travelled far and wide to play with like-minded people. Without exception, acoustic guitar players are wonderful people. Being in a place where the barriers are down and people allow themselves to be vulnerable and open is the most wonderful thing in the world. And when you’re in that open and vulnerable mode, music penetrates right to the soul.
