And so, my month of merry music-making has come to an end. I wrote about instruments, many of which I’d never before heard of, and musicians that tried their best at playing them!
I cannot thank enough those that chose to play along with me, your comments were encouraging, humorous, sage and often very ‘punny’!
I gained a lot of pleasure from following your blogs, most of which were in categories other than mine, and made quite a few new acquaintances along the way.
That’s the good bit done. Now let’s get serious!
I thought long and hard before deciding to take part this year. This was my sixth go at it, having joined up in 2015.
Sadly, each year there has been a decline in the number of folks participating. In 2015, a total of 1509 added their names to the master list, this year just 307.
Also, the number of writers posting very short stories, my chosen area, has dwindled to just a few. And as with previous years, with one exception, I received no visits from any of the team members.
Each and every year I’ve said in my Reflections that it would probably be my last. Then as a new April approaches, I change my mind!
Was this my last go? On reflection, probably!
