In 2016 I'm attempting to do #52weeksofstorytelling with a different theme each week.
Week 4/52 - Passion
When I was 9 years old, I came home from school and told my parents I wanted to play violin. My first teacher didn't even play the violin, but she gave me a good enough start. Eventually I took private lessons and in high school decided to pursue a degree in violin performance. Playing the violin has never come easy to me...it's hard work, but when I'm fully immersed in the work, it's satisfying. I've always considered myself more of a violin teacher than a performer, but this past year those two roles have switched. I'm finding myself in a place of renewed passion for making music.
I think going for walks with my camera is my favorite thing to do. I love to find beauty in unexpected places - like raindrops on weeds and reflections in puddles. With the exception of the foggy forest pic, these are all from my wanderings this past week.
