Do banjos pick their owners?

Monday, July 14, 2008

Stay with me on this for a minute. A friend recently remarked that I love banjos so much because they love me back. Interesting thought but can that be possible? Let's look at this a little closer.

Don't write me off as crazy just yet. Here is my take on this subject. Banjos are made primarily of wood are they not? Wood is from trees who are most definately alive. There have been studies that propose plant life has feelings and reacts to the spoken words of humans.

Okay, you might say, well, the tree is dead so there. When people pass away I believe that not to be the end of them. Some will disagree with that but for the sake of discussion let us say that is so. Why then can not this be true of all living things? Some of us feel so close to our pets that we want to believe they have gone to a better place when their time comes, right?

Now that we can agree that the spirit of the tree is indeed alive and well within the banjo we love it is easy to think of our instrument as a living, breathing and feeling thing and not some dead collection of parts put together.

You look at your banjo with love and admiration. You hold it close to your heart and soul with affection. It is easy to see why the banjo does without a doubt love you in return. Isn't it wonderful to have this settled?? I am off now. I am taking my banjo out for an ice cream. You can now write me off as crazy.
