Music is My Life

November 20, 2007 at 1:06 PM

This is in response to Ben Clapton's recent blog entry: http://www.violinist.com/blog/BClapton/


I am sure you're a lot better off in your musical life than I am. I am pretty sure you started at a young age and have lived your life with music. I would give a lot to experience what it would feel like to have grown with the violin, changing from 1/4 to 2/4 to 3/4 to 4/4, watching how my sound developes under the small hands of 4 years of age to 12 years of age and so on...

My point is, Music is your life even if you do not recognize it. The reason you do not notice it is because it is apart of you. Just like someone doesn't notice the importance of their arm or leg until they loose it.

You love music, and I am glad that their are musicians such as you out there to deliver your emotions through music to lovers of music such as myself. (And wannabes such as myself)
