Today Ahmad got me my new Oud.
I had very good reasons to get the new Oud, for the strings, the sound echo and clarity and most of all I needed a smaller Oud so it would not slip off my lap.
But still, I am emotionally confused. Am I supposed to love two Ouds? Or shall I just let go of the old one?
I called the new Oud "Las Puertas" , a Spanish word for "the doors".
