Tonight I played in my second concert with our local community orchestra. We had a bit of a nightmare rehearsal last week, but everything came together on the night.
Just before the start of the concert, as we were a bit short of strings, I was pushed to the front row of the second violins for the first time. I just had to get on with it – all my nerves disappeared and I just went for it. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and the sense of contributing to the sound we were making and of pushing myself a bit further out of my comfort zone.
This, to me, is what living a richer life is all about – doing things you really love, developing interests and spending time with friends. Shopping doesn’t even come close.
What is your favourite hobby or interest?
Until next time, Tawney x
