Aren't violins lovely things? This one is on loan from He-Man's sister. Sometimes, instead of actually practicing, I just like to take it out of it's case and lay it in my lap and look at it. The craftmanship put into musical instruments is really a thing to behold. Now I want to be a luthier. Not like my creepy neighbor who orders pre-made dulcimer parts and slaps them together, but the real deal - the cutting and sanding and varnishing. Oh, I would love to make a living doing that.
