Cello and base violin

A concert in the hall today. I pulled my chair out past my door and sat listening but it wasn't enough. I went over and sat on the floor between the two instruments and closed my eyes. Stereo cello and base violin, deep, resonate, filling in empty places I didn't even know were there. Music had tears flowing down my cheeks. Total, transport out of here bliss.


  1. Valerie, I'm with you every day eager to hear what you are experiencing. Bless you for your courage and strength. Just do one hour at a time now, and let the healing continue. It is a rough trip I am sure. But your writing is stunning. Love, Joan Howard

  2. Valerie, It is Joan not Russ that is posting here. We are both thinking of you, however, and sending our best for a new beginning now. Be confident that the healing is going the way it needs to, and it is okay to use liquid food for a while letting your throat heal. Love, Joan

  3. Your musical experience last evening is wonderful. Vibrations in sync it sounds like, and how soothing that has to feel for you. Your body loved that music. Joan
