My name is Mikel and I'm the new girl. I didn't want to mix subjects, so I'm tossing this out there by itself. Possibly I am more peculiar than even I knew, but I'm surprised that I've heard no mention of the names of your violins. Do people not name their violins and bows? Or is it a secret, possibly taboo? It was the first thing I did. People name their cars, pieces of land and I've heard of guitars and such being named. Violins seem far more personal than some of these other things. That is my screen tile. My violin is called "Eventide" for it is dark and dusky. And my bow's name is "Spark". As it kindles the evening combining both light and dark into a magical experience.
