Sore Fingers

So I played violin at church yesterday and today my fingers are a little bit sore. This would not be the case if I played every day, or even a few times a week. The truth is, I really only play my violin a few times prior to whenever I'm scheduled to play at church. I would like to play more often and have started going through my stack of violin stuff. It all comes back to my fingers pretty quickly - it's a matter of just doing it.

After playing yesterday, I was asked by more than one person, "How long have you been playing?" The answer is a little scary to me.

Thirty years.

3-0. GAH!!! When did that happen?? I started violin when I was 4 years old. Now I feel old. I was reminded of this little photographic gem, though. It was taken during a recital when I was 6:
I love playing at church, though, so the whole sore finger thing is totally worth it. And lest you think that what we're doing there is solemn, classical or boring...check this out. This was one of our special numbers from a few months ago.
