I walked out of the store much closer to becoming an adult starter violinist than I was when I walked in, and the feeling was elation. It finally felt like things were coming together for me to have a real shot at learning to play the violin.
I don't know exactly when I began to feel guilty and stupid for wanting to pursue something purely for my own enrichment. But I knew I had to fix that.
There are a lot of Why's to explore within myself. Why Violin? Why Now? Why Write about and share it? Why add something like this to my plate?
