I remember Little House on the Prairie, I use to watch that when I got out of school. It is neat to read about how certain things inspire others into wanting to do something. Learning to play instruments has always been important and even more so now with having an autistic son. My son loves to listen to instruments and with his eye sight being bad an instrument is something he can play and relate too. My son is currently learning to play guitar, but doesn’t soothe him like the sounds of the violin. So my kids also inspire me to try new things like instruments because they are learning right with me. I wanted to say thank you for reading the post and responding. I really enjoyed reading what you wrote and I remember the show now. Violins are just a peaceful and relaxing sound to hear.
