Sunday Serenade Apr25

Sunday Serenade

It’s 2:30 am on a Sunday night/Monday morning. It’s been an interesting day of music. I came downstairs this morning to find my roommate’s friend hungover and eating Chinese food. She’d shown an interest in my guitars last Sunday morning (yes, last Sunday too) and since...
