Today’s Daily Prompt asked: You can choose any person from history to teach you any topic you want. Who’s your teacher and what do they teach you?
Charles Darwin, Richard Dawkins, Alain de Botton, Michel Foucault and Urie Bronfenbrenner taught me how to think
Adolf Hitler taught me what NOT to do
My family taught me how to survive and how to function in society
My beloved other-half taught me how to love…

I have been playing guitar for over a decade now and I have been influenced by guitarists who were influenced by Hendrix (who isn’t, right?). I would really love to pick his brains on how he managed to come up with timeless classics such as Little Wing:
And Purple Haze
‘Scuse me, while I Kiss the Sky!
