And I thank Laurie who had the foresight to create V.com and the tenacity to keep it up and running for all these years. She has made an incomparable contribution to string musicians.
Most impressive is, that she has kept the website strictly on target and totally clear of filth. This is a site that is safe for all who are old enough to read and will not introduce any subject off color.
About ten years ago, I remember a mixed up thirteen year old girl who wanted new and better violins, bows, cases etc. that her mother could ill afford. This girl was taken into heart by a good number of V.com readers who carefully took their time to talk (in writing) to her, console her and convince her that she needed to learn on the instrument that she had at the time; at the current time new expensive equipment wasn’t appropriate.
I thank all of you, and especially Laurie, for the knowledge that you have contributed educating me on the playing on and about the machine called violin.
Make sure that your bows have 8 hours of light every day and Happy New Year.
