Some things never change
I haven't caught the "I feel old" bug yet, but it occurred to me last week that I've been using this same purple-flowered cloth to clean my violin for almost 24 years. I can't think of any other material possession that's been in my life so long that I still use! I have a pretty clear memory (that I confirmed with my mom) from one of my first violin lessons where my teacher pulled out a stack of all these neat old handkerchiefs and I got to choose one. I remember that it was a very hard decision and I didn't spend as long looking at them as I would have liked, but I'm still very happy with my choice! Perhaps it's time for a hand-wash?
