The Aroma of the Cigar

"Get that shit out of your mind!"

How funny that this is what I remember the clearest from all you told me throughout the 3 years.

Not the definition of vibrato, not that harmonic is a note, not to use flat bow nor to save the bow, but to get the shit out of my mind.

I remember your husky tone, the pitch, with crescendo throughout the phrase and accents on each word.

I even remember the rhythm of the words.

You know I don't just apply that to music, don't you?

You know you are more than a violin teacher for me, right?

I hope you are doing well over there.
