Since I was young, I was a voracious reader and had a deep love of words and the way they could be used to convey meaning. I hope that my words and my stories would have a positive impact on others.

Does it capture her years of hardwork and moment of triumph?

A Moment of Music

May 7, 2016

It was after years of hard work. After countless tears and rejection, after she had been laughed at and ignored, after hours of locking herself in the room, her hands memorising the strings on the fingerboard, pressing on the strings until her fingers bled red. After so much waiting, her heart beating and her hands trembling with the odd but familiar blend of nervousness and excitement. She was finally here, standing up on the stage, the spotlight illuminating her slight figure that belied the strength of her will. She closed her eyes, lifted her violin and began to play, releasing the soft and sweet lullabies that she had cradled in her sleep every night to the crowd, as if dispersing dandelion seeds to the wind.
