Back to the trumpet

Last week when I was seeing the Cranial Osteopathist I'm working with, he said he had seen me playing a trumpet in his visualizations during the last two sessions. I had never told this man that I had ever played the trumpet, but he is very intuitive. He said he thought it would be good for my lungs and heart to play the trumpet, so I went online to eBay and found a used Yamaha trumpet and put a bid on it. Well, the trumpet is on its way to me today and I'll see what happens when I try to play after 45 years of never putting a mouthpiece to my lips. Soon, perhaps, the sweet strains of "Sugar Blues" will be wafting from our house!

I know that my preference for alternative medical care will probably be laughed at by some allopathic types on the blog, but I find that I get excellent results from the likes of homeopathy, cranial sacral, acupuncture and the like. Anyone else have opinions on the subject?

Thought so! However, I seem to be enjoying great health, only part of which I can attribute to my English peasant genes.

And, of course, as the whole blog knows, clean living!

Well, the trumpet arrived today and I went out to buy a mouthpiece and a bottle of valve oil.

Sugar Blues may have to wait for awhile, since my lip is completely gone! But, who knows, it may be like riding a bike.

I'd love to hear "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White" again. You sure knew how to "roll" those notes.

I'll start practicing!

I am confused about which Naomi is writing.

Gary White said...

That would be Naomi Helpingstine/Remer, Wayne.

Phil Foust said...

In other words ... Anonymous II ... as I believe Anonymous I is Naomi, too ... or perhaps Anonymous III is now using just plain Naomi in order to confucious?

In any event, it seems to me that I haven't read anything from a Naomi or an Anonymous on this blog that I didn't like.

Anonymous said...

Phil,

I think you labeled me anonymous 1 so will let you know if I ever
send some comment it will be under Bea Howell.

Naomi, Do you go by Bea or Naomi in your circle of friends and relatives??

Gary White said...

Hey, Naomi H/Remer, I almost made it all the way through "Cherry Pink . . ." before my lip gave out!

Naomi said...

Way to go, Gary! Keep up the good work.
Naomi H/ Remer.
