Lucky



This is violin maker Terry Borman holding a violin, one that I commissioned from him almost two years ago. Today, I had the pleasure of introducing Terry to my teacher/mentor Geoffrey Trabichoff, and as I expected, the two had a fascinating conversation, and I got to be the proverbial fly on the wall and hear the two share their experiences and opinions pertaining to the wonderful world of the violin. Geoffrey played my new violin, and I beamed when he told me that I was an "incredibly lucky girl" to be the owner of such a fine instrument.

I am a lucky girl. For being such an ordinary gal, I am surrounded by extraordinary people. And I have this extraordinary violin, of which I must strive to become worthy!

I have played on Terry's instruments, and I quite agree with Geoffrey. He is a master magician--the Olivander of Violin Makers. Wish I had one too!
