Unknown Generosity

June 17, 2011 14:37

Ever since I began my journey on the violin, I've been shocked at the unabashed generosity that fellow violinists/fiddlers have shown me. Everything from, free bed and dinner while the luthier spent 12 hours on my baby, to free bows (only inexpensive ones), steep discounts, and the list goes on. I'm not accustom to this and I LOVE IT! I've spent the vast majority of my life watching my back and trying to stop people from stepping all over me. This is an awesome change of pace.
