I played trumpet and French horn in the band, but it was always the piano that enchanted me. Then one day I had a little girl of my own. She learned to play the piano through the instruction of several area pianists, but she wanted to play the flute.
And boy...could she play the flute. Her sound was rich with lush bravado. To this day I love the sound of the flute, the violin, and the piano, my three favorite instruments.
When I think back music enriched my life from the deep baritone of my dad's voice to the sweet lilting notes of my daughter's flute. My sister went on to get her degree in music and teach. I went on to play the piano in the solitary confines of the parlor, and my daughter...once in a great while she picks up her flute and makes a joyful noise that this mama adores.
Oh that Kim Klassen! She's done it again with yet another lovely texture titled, Lola. The flute photo is layered with Lola and also Kim's Wonderful Magic Stars. Search for more textured beauties here...
