Classical Music - 21 Jan 2006

I enjoy listening to classical music, perhaps because I started taking violin lessons at an early age. My first violin was a small one made especially for children. Then I graduated to a mid-sized violin and finally to a standard size.

I took private violin lessons from an elderly gentleman, Professor King. In high school I played second violin in the first violin section of the school orchestra, and I was in the college orchestra in my freshman year. Then my interest in playing the violin seemed to wane.

Much later, as an adult, I took piano lessons. But again, I gave it up. But I think my enjoyment in listening to others play these instruments is enhanced by having had these lessons.

In recent years many radio stations have dropped classical music. I hope this trend will be reversed.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
