Won't you play along?
My Uncle gave my Dad this violin.
My dad gave both his violin and this one to my sister.
Awhile back, she so graciously gave this one to me.
From what we can tell by the shoulder strap imprint,
it will be 100 years old in October 2012.
I wanted to restore it but felt that if I did, all the hands that had touched it, the sounds that came from it and the past it represented, would melt away.
So I enjoy it by taking it out every now and then,...touching it, listened in my head for the songs and sounds to come to me and feeling a closeness to the people who are no longer here.
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Timeless Memories
