Going Down An Elevator

Have you ever decided one day, out of the blue, that there’s something that you just have to do, even though it’s totally and completely way out there??

Something that most people wouldn’t be interested in doing — which maybe makes it that much more appealing to you.

Something that’s both familiar and foreign at the same time.

Something that excites you, teaches you, challenges you.

Do you call it a violin?

Or a fiddle?

One of my inspirations, Erin Leahy…

{Going Down An Elevator represents the four notes that the fiddle strings are tuned to — G, D, A, E.}

I just think its the neatest thing in the world that you are taking violin lessons. What a fun thing to do! Keep us updated on your progress, maybe you'll post a video of your first recital:)

Learning keeps our outlook positive and open to learn more. You notice more in life and you live on a different level. It's contagious to those who are getting to know you too! How exciting and life fulfilling for you.

Hi Kelly, how you doing? it has been so long since I have blogged and talked with anyone in blogland. Violin lessons, good for you girl!!! I always wanted to dance, literally floating around the stag so gracefully. How is your course going?

Glad you're enjoying it! Always good to challenge yourself and try something new! You've inspired me to take up art classes in the winter.
