Holding the Music to My Heart by lyndemc

Holding the Music to My Heart

There are honestly times I hug my instrument, thankful for its patience with me, and its efforts to help me learn how to play better.

That may sound nuts, but after a particularly good practice session, it just feels like the entity of wood and wire did something to help create an improvement in the music.
This picture reveals that I need to update my profile picture; my hair is no longer dark. And no, it's not because of Covid's shutting down hair salons, but that I stopped "painting" my hair a long time ago. The money I save buys new cello strings and re-hairs the bow when needed.

Denise, this is such a beautifully emotive image! Masterfully done, and, depending on how long we're in lockdown, *many* of us may need new profile photos!

I love the way your black shirt makes that part of you invisible.

I like the way the change from colour to B & W creates a totally different dynamic... this is much more intimate - clearly a relationship image.

Such a wonderful and emotional image showing how much you love and appreciate your Cello. Your hair looks amazing and it would be great to see the new you :-)

Wonderful image (as always), but this one is particularly personal and beautiful. We're seeing a different part of you here. It's quite magical, and I love your hair. I am thinking about using this crisis to refrain from future dabbling with paintbrushes in hair too ... but we'll see!
