You should take up an instrument, Daniel. It will free your mind of thoughts to let the vibrations of the air do your thinking and talking. It won’t be about playing well or badly. It won’t be about rules or following them. It will be about joy, and from joy and its source, love, that all things flow into the boundaries which seem like restriction until it’s realized they are an endless playground of 12 notes.

Wow.

My favorite would have to be the piano.

I do not know if the classical guitar is my favorite instrument, but it is the instrument that I currently play.  Here is a video of a song I just learned. 

For the stone shall cry out of the wall; and the timber that is between the joints of the building, shall answer.  Woe to him that buildeth a town with blood, and prepareth a city by iniquity. - Habacuc 2,11-12

Providence is a present mystery by which our hope is confirmed and our faith solidified, if we give not into despair or disbelief.

Good, brother, good. Who said pipes? Forgot about them.
