Deserting My Poor Violin

July 27, 2011 07:59

 Well, I had my Flat Foot Reconstruction Surgery on June 17, 2011. Although my foot has been feeling better, it has been near impossible to pick up my violin because I have to be laying down the whole day. I haven't heard the beautiful sound of a violin in 6 weeks, and honestly I never thought it this way, but it has become an addiction. Previously, I used to practice 4, 5 , 6 hours a day, and I used to feel happy and delighted to register that sweet tone of Mozart, Bach, Brahms etc. But recently I have noticed that not touching the violin has taken a toll on my moods. I feel depressed easily, and other negative feelings. Is the violin truly a drug? Do any of you feel this way?
