I took a month off from my violin. I had it restrung during that time and I bought a new bow. I gave my cracked finger tops a chance to heal. The orchestra that I am part of, starts again this week and I went back to my teacher for my weekly lesson. Finally, after more years then I care to admit to, I have a feel for timing, flats, and.sharps . Amazing. I hope that this feeling is validated when I go for my first rehearsal of this new session. I recognize the names of the composers, too. That's a plus. So far, their melodies are not swimming around in my head, but I hope that one day they do. Did you know that on You Tube, you can listen to almost all the popular composers. The theory is that at some point I should be able to play along with the video. Wouldn't that be special.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
