My beloved Deering banjo and 19th century violin really helps to keep a balance mind. I played the cello as a child but it wasn't until following my SCI I took the instruments seriously. I discontinued the cello and chose the violin for obvious reason. It also conveys my immense gratitude to our Merciful Creator for the privilege of my fingers (T-4). I find this especially true for a socially inept recluse! Cheers!
