Stephen loves music, and we have tried to bring over many of his instruments to allow him to continue to pursue music from here. Through our trips over and with the help of visitors, we have a studio equipped with an acoustic guitar, a keyboard, an electric guitar, bass guitar, djembe, ukelele, and a backpack guitar.
He is pretty equipped to play whatever he wants. Well, almost.
One of his favorite pastimes while sitting in the car is playing drums: on the steering wheel, his knee, the gear shift, the dashboard, my knee, and my headrest. After a recent performance, he decided, “I think drums is what I miss playing the most. I really miss being able to play drums.”
“What else could you miss? Don’t you have most every thing else here, where you can just play it when you want? That’s probably why you don’t miss those things. If you do miss them, you just play them.”
“Yeah. That’s probably why. But I still miss drums the most.”
