They had never heard it before: the twanged string of a Cello. Neither had I, until about this time last year.
So I began playing the cello in March 2018. I completely immersed myself into it and was playing 24/7 every day. Non-stop. Then June came and I lost all my motivations for the instrument. Spurts of motivation came every now and then throughout autumn and summer but by winter I had given up.
Then the new year came.
I’m not one for the ‘new year, new me’ sort of idea but all of a sudden I have fallen in love with that instrument again. This is what happens with music. These phases are the start of a devotion.
