Steven Dybvad – Personal Journal – June 6, 2014
Guitar practice continues to move along well for me. I truly enjoy learning this instrument; it gives me a sense of peace and serenity that is extremely hard to find in prison. Although learning guitar has it’s curves, teaching my hands the muscle memory required to make crisp, clear sounding chords are a difficult task, this progression doesn’t happen overnight, or even in a month for that matter, but patience and persistence certainly pays off in the long run.
My friend Kurt told me about a video visit that he was having with his friend today. He told me that his friend was on vacation in some beautiful island south of the United States somewhere I can’t quite remember. He told me that his friend was going to talk about some things for the first fifteen minutes, then face the camera towards the beautiful ocean view for the last fifteen minutes and that I should come down and check it out, so I did. The scenery was breathtaking. Looking at a view so amazing makes me wonder why I ever made drugs more important than my freedom. All I know is that every day for the rest of my life will be dedicated to and focused on sobriety and success, enabling me to attain things like another vacation to beautiful parts of the world with my family and children sharing in the experience.
