Keys unlock many things; doors, secret places, boxes of memories hidden away.  Some keys are real, others as intangible as a key to the human heart.  But they all open something, unlock a mystery, or allow us to pass through to another place.  

I have a favorite set of keys, very old, but very reliable.  They open doors to melodies waiting to be found . . . I never travel without them, or my guitar. They go with me to where the music is and help me bring it back. Sometimes they just keep me company even if I have neglected them for a time.  I save this set of keys for myself mostly.  I am a collector of strings and things that harness the wind, or shake, rattle and vibrate to make music; these accompany me when I share my music with the world.  

But the keys I take with me when I travel late into the night, are like the ones in my parents' house that first unlocked the place where music lives.
