I fell in love 2.5 years ago. My swain (doodie) charmed me with his pure and poetic sound, gorgeous body, wonderful rich complexion but mostly, well, because we made amazing music together:
I know what did it - it was not the easiest violin to play, not by far. The reason was two fold: first, the note was pure enabling me to hear that I was out of tune (you have to start somewhere :)) and second, while the sound was thin and reedy with most of attempts (not much technique after after a 40 year gap), with effort I heard the promise of a rich tone and, more important dazzling variety that the other violins could not match.
My love has only grown stronger. But what of his for me? Can a violin fall in love with you?
