I hope the autoharp I eventually buy appreciates how much zealous attention I'm going to give to learning how to play with more proficiency than the last time I laid hands on one almost, what, 40 (ouch!) years ago. I hope it will forgive me for the discordance that is sure to result from my initial attempts and will remain patient in the face of my discovery of what I can create with it. I know that whichever one makes its way into my lap will be as cherished there as if it were a cat and stroked as lovingly.
