Well, I turned fifteen years old today, and have to admit I feel none the wiser, older, or more intelligent because of it.

Two years ago this week I got one of my best birthday presents ever - my cheap little Czech warhorse of a violin. It's amazing the places that instrument and I have been together, and all the barriers we've broken together, and all the ideas we've shared together. All the ear-drums we've broken together...ha ha.

I've been thinking about sending my violin a "happy anniversary" card or something - I feel it deserves something for having dealt with me so patiently for so long - but unfortunately I have a feeling Hallmark doesn't carry "happy anniversary violin" cards. I guess a good polish, some Bach, and new strings will have to do.
