tradition vs. modernity

If you want, that people show respect and attention to you, then you need a traditional outfit with a so called millstone collar. My friend Akbar Simonse in The Netherlands likes to wear such a dress – and my cat Emily by my side too, if she is listening to one of my stupid guitar arrangements – then she likes to demonstrate, that she is permanently focused on classical traditions – when I’m playing modern pop shit on my electric guitar (instead of using an old Spanish guitar, built 1700).

    Nowadays, the collar is smaller and the beard is longer….:-)


  2. You made me smile… Your cat Emily is a lucky one, never gets bored with you πŸ™‚ I loved this post too. Thank you dear Frizz and dear Emily! Blessing and Happiness to you all, love, nia


  3. The collar – perhaps an excuse for those who can not tie a tie or bow tie… πŸ˜‰

    Enjoyed the music along with my morning coffee, but don’t think I am a collar kind of guy!


  5. Wonderful portrait! I really enjoyed the morning music too. So glad I don’t have to choose, because I enjoyed them both. (If I knew where to get or make a collar like that, I would have a historical costume dinner party.)


  6. Akbar’s head looks like it’s floating in mid air! excellent photo.

    I’ve always wondered about the name of those collars and I have been too lazy and forgetful to look it up. Now I have the answer. Thanks, Frizz.

    P.S. I like your guitar-work also.
