Painful

January 21, 2018, 8:25 PM · Dear all,

Today, Giulia (Julia), my violin, fell down and crashed on the floor of my church where I play in the choir every Sunday. I don't even remember how this happen. I have only foggy images of the moments before and a very clear picture of her on the cold floor. Her fingerboard is now separated from the neck and has a scratch/dent in the front right corner.

I'm taking her to the luthier tomorrow afternoon.

How do you deal with this pain and with feeling as an idiot (the biggest ever)? I thought all that feelings the pros have after an accident like this were only stories.

It really hurts....
