The man’s fingertips have built up calluses from the years of plucking out tune after tune

One hand is wrapped around a maple mahogany guitar neck and the other grasps a pick between two fingers

The music takes me to a warm beach with deep indigo painted sky’s and golden sands

Where does your music take you? I ask in curiosity and wonder

Home, he replies. Then begins plucking out a new tune.
