Amid the stress of job searching and the joys of book writing and art making, Anevay and I have discovered a new passion... the ukulele! Last week we visited Bruno and I became slightly obsessed with his new instrument.
Nice thing is, I picked up two of them for about half the price of a guitar (which is what Anevay had asked for her upcoming birthday).
Unfortunately, Anevay was already asleep when the following video was made. It's possible that it's the worst rendition of Build Me Up Buttercup ever recorded. Thanks to Tricia and Hermann Vessey for all of their help with the video, and for giving me a laugh, and thanks Bruno, for giving me the inspiration to become the phenominal musician you see below.
I am Melissa Banigan. I've been many things under the sun, but am currently a single mom raising an amazing kid in Brooklyn, writing novels and short stories, and working on some art (canvases and paper). I also, under the moniker melifera, produce off-the-cusp embroidered clothing and bags.
