Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge. Week 25: Music

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge.  Week 25: Music (

I grew up a musician.  My mom played the flute in the symphony (and taught flute), my dad played bassoon and was a composer (and taught Music at the University) and I grew up playing the piano, the flute, and singing.   My first degree is in Music, performance, in string bass and for many years I played in orchestras and jazz groups.  I haven’t played in a long time now and there are days I really miss it.  I may not play any more, but I will always be a musician.

I finally sold my bass last year, and here are some remembrances of it:



No, this isn’t my bass, but it’s a bass pillow and a kitty!

  1. Lovely to read your post about your musical family. Do you think you’ll ever take up playing a musical instrument or singing again? It must have been great fun being in a band and I bet you’ve some great memories about it?

    • Thanks! I’ve thought about singing again, but haven’t taken the leap. Maybe someday…I really miss playing in my bands sometimes, and do have some great memories. I should write them down – wonder where I could do that 🙂

  2. How awesome that you are a musician! Now I understand why you go to musical events so much! It’s a “going home” for you. 🙂 It’s comfort food for your musician’s heart.
