Mr. Woofles Takes a Nap

Once, after listening to a live recording of George Gershwin playing "Rhapsody in Blue" I wrote...

Listening to George Gershwin play piano is a lot like looking up at the stars on a moonless night. Each shimmering note reminds me that I am small.
I am nothing.

In this video below Craig Ventresco bedazzles and bewitches with a humble Ukulele, while Mr. Woofles strikes a content pose.

Cliff Edwards, or Ukulele Ike, was the voice of Disney's Jimminy Cricket. He also sang the tune, "When You Wish Upon a Star".

How can an instrument so small trigger thoughts so large?
