When you are 20 years old, don’t wear the following…
An old acquaintance who interviewed me when I was 20 years old recently contacted me. A very talented journalist/writer, I remember doing the in-person interview on the streets of Chicago. The team persuaded me to put on the most ridiculous outfit that was supposedly very ‘high fashion’. I remember wearing some kind of balloonish type shorts, hose, jacket and drumroll……….a chapeau. Yes, a hat of very dramatic proportions. Perfect if you can imagine me as a Shakespearean violin playing bard (ette) or simply, a lampshade. Yes…I re-read the interview and thought it was very honest and telling (once you got over the photo). Amazing, the things you find out about yourself-like a fine bottle of wine, one hopes to age well and be able to drink in the wisdom that develops! And speaking of wine, I hope to have a nice glass of some tonight as I pack my bags tonight to head off to California. I love listening to John Schaefer’s ‘New Sounds Show’, try to finish Ayn Rand’s ‘Atlas Shrugged’ (it has taken me at least a year…I am not kidding…it’s over 1000 pages long!) and manage to get the Lekeu Piano Quartet out of my head. Have a great week!! Bye for now……

You look very cute in the picture and I love your honest & fearless
Sophia has something to send you. It should be there soon.
well, for the record – i had absolutely nothing to do w/ the silly outfit, i just did the interview … the only explanation i can offer is perhaps the famed fashion photog who did the shoot – Stan Malinowski – thought you played a trumpet … lol.
Hello Anne, I think you’re fabulous. Atlas Shrugged is a great book. I remember reading it while lying in the grass on my farm in Hawaii. It made me laugh hysterically and cry (at different times). I don’t know if you’re getting the full effect stretching it over a year like that. Though I’m sure you’re far busier than I’ve ever been.
Let me ask you, do you think 28 is too old to start learning the violin?
