Violin: Fritz Kreisler, Praeludium in the style of Pugnani

Thing practiced: violin

Tool used: Yamaha YSV104 silent violin

I’ve been trying to pick up the violin again, after 13 years of being pissed off about not being able to play. Sometimes joy is just defiance, a refusal to let the ghosts of loss or failure be the ones to tell the story. There’s only time moving inexorably on, carrying everything away, and all we can do is refuse, shove forward, stab on.
