I can see auras. And I can play a ukulele, too, although it's not one of my favorite instruments. I understand they were very popular at one time.

Kalila said...

Why would anyone want to play a ukulele? Is it because they don't have a guitar? This has definitely aroused my curiosity.

Anonymous said...

The aura around the ukulele (wow, that's the first time I ever wrote that word) aroused a curiosity.

Nevin said...

A ukulele with an aura would definitely be a curiosity, Anon. I've never seen one like that before.

Kalila said...

It would be more interesting than most human auras, though, Nevin.

Troubadour said...

My aura glowed as the twangy sound of the ukelele piqued my curiosity: what is it like in Hawaii?

Anonymous said...

Curiosity led me
to a torpical isle,
where I burnished my aura
living free
and playing ukulele on the shore

Anonymous said...

Hi

I don't know how to play the ukele.

Ricky said...

Don't worry about it, Shadow. I can't play ukulele, either. I'm not sure why anyone would, actually.

Christine H said...

A ukelele hung on the wall of our basement. We used to play with it sometimes. I never was curious about why it was there. I never even asked my dad where it came from. I just accepted it as part of my environment.

Children are like that. We think that the way things are is how they always were and always will be, and it never occurs to us that there was a Before that had anything to do with Now.

Flower said...

I have trouble seeing people - I would imagine that seeing auras would make you a bit of a curiosity.
I had to look up ukulele cos I thought it was invented - some bloke was playing it - way small!

Seeing auras, as well as people and shadows, must be way confusing.
Are auras like about personalities or health or what?

Nevin said...

Flower, an aura can be influenced by both health and personality. Yours suggests a very kind heart and sensitive soul, but there's a shadow there, too. That's your sadness. If you work on building your happiness, the dark places will go away.

Vic said...

Vampires don't have auras. Or curiosity. And I don't like ukuleles.

This is dumb discussion. I'm going to see what's new down at the blood bank.

Anonymous said...

Yes, Nevin,
a akulele (that makes two times now) aura IS a curiosity.
What do you make of it?
Is it a haunted ukulele (oh no, going for a record three!) ???

Anonymous said...

No, vampires don't have auras, they leave stains though.

Anonymous said...

Why is it that vampires are known to have musical talent and taste?

Why can a vampire enjoy opera, classical music, dramatic music,
even rock,

but never ever country music or banjo,ukulele, dolcimer, or cow bell?

Candy said...

For me there is always a cowboy aura about a man who plays a ukulele and I am curious to find out if he is as romantic as I imagine him to be.

I hope I will meet some cowboys while I'm in the U.S.

Bo said...

I'll dress up as a cowboy for you, Candy. I'll play a ukulele for you, too, if it'll turn you on. I prefer my bass guitar, though. It's sexier. No curiosity about that.

Candy said...

The trouble with you Bo is that, though i adore you and would be curious to see you in person,I;m afraid that you might too soon fling off the cowboy garb , put down your ukulele and, unable to resist your sexy aura, do what incubi (plural?) do, which would spoil a lovely friendship.
Am I right,Nevin?

Nevin said...

Candy, you're very wise. I'm afraid that even when Bo's intentions toward a human are honorable, which sometimes happens, his demon nature eventually takes over. It's nothing personal, though.

And by the way, you have a lovely aura. I could tell when I met you that you were a very creative person.

flower said...

But Nevin I don't think there is anything good left - I think niceness seeps out when... after... you stop thinking life is meant to be fair.

Anonymous said...

Hi Candy,

If I saw you in person, I wouldn't do anything to your aura.

Promise.

Gabby said...

One thing I have is lots of curiosity. It's what let me find that dark room full of musical instruments down in the basement. I betchya one of them is a ukulele.Good set of drums too. I wiped the cobwebs off and had a go. Haven't lost the touch none. No one goes down there,it has a real spooky aura. I can practice. I play kinda different, like my grandad taught me in the islands. Voodoo stuff too. Cool! You'll like it Nevin. 'Course I'll probably die here but maybe playin with you guys gives me somethin' to look forward to. Thanks for bein nice.

If I could see auras, Tanessa's would be a dark color, like red or black maybe. I'd like to think mine was something like a medium blue.

Ricky said...

Anonymous, I could go for a pizza. I'm not sure what that has to do with ukuleles, but count me in!

Anonymous said...

I wouldn't mind some pizza!

DESTINY said...

I play the ukuele quite well, and I have no aura. In case you were curious.

Glynis said...

The owner of the old curiosity shop, had an aura about her.In the window I saw a Ukulele for the first time.
