Monday's Muse

A Sure Sign of Spring

Sure, there are daffodils and cherry blossoms and the song of the robin... but the true harbinger of spring? My dulcimer is sharp!

After a season of strings going flat, flat, flatter, and students wondering out loud, "How low can we go?" there is definitely a change in the air. We'll be experiencing the seasonal adjustment as humidity returns to our part of the world. The wood and strings will soak it up, and everything will go sharp.

I will welcome spring, along with the continued opportunity to practice the zen of tuning!

See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.  ~ Ray Bradbury, fahrenheit 451

Monday's Muse

A few can touch the magic string,
And noisy Fame is proud to win them;
Alas for those that never sing,
But die with all their music in them!  ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
