I just rediscovered the violin (Thanksgiving weekend 2010), and I cant stop playing. I stopped playing the violin 6 years ago, after 8 years of playing. Unfortunately, at that time, I did not realize how much my violin meant to me and, for the these last 6 years, I have been desperately seeking to fill the void in my heart that I did not know existed.
I am practicing every moment that I am awake and not at work. Ever since that fateful day that I decided I want to play the violin again, my life suddenly made a drastic change and now revolves around my violin and regaining the skill and technique that I lost while "in limbo".
