I love the responses about pets’ reactions. I haven’t been able yet to get a violin again. Mine were stollen in early 1980s, but I inherited a piano and have been making good progress playing it. My dogs reactions can be priceless. Can’t wait to see how they behave when I get back to violin. I found that I remembered more than I thought I would after so many years and it helped me progress more quickly on piano so am hoping I can enjoy violin more than I did in my youth.
