My Way


I received this in an email just moments ago and just had to share.  My eyes sprung leaks when I heard the opening note.  It is so beautiful.  I'm sure it caused a bit more emotion than usual because it took me back in time when our daughter, Julie, played the violin in school.  Oh so pretty.  I cried at every performance. 

So this one is for you Julie.  Love you.

The renowned Dutch violinist, conductor and composer, and his orchestra did a tribute to Frank Sinatra with "My Way" on his Stradivarius violin at Radio City Music Hall – New York.

So beautiful! It's funny...my son and I were listening to music over the holiday weekend and talking about different artists and songs. Elvis' name came up and I said that one of my favorite songs he sang was "My Way".

Andre Rieu can make the violin sing...I love listening to him. Have you heard him play Amazing Grace? It's absolutely beautiful! Here's a link for ya, in case you haven't heard it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyQkRrb-RLU

Thank You Mom!!!! I enjoyed that so much!!! I also cried....more from my memories of playing the violin and my deep longing for being able to play it again. It is funny how as I get older I wish I had back some of my younger years so I could pay closer attention to things that I now find amazing....like History and yes even the Violin....I learned a lot about it but I didn't appreciate what practice could do for me and I didn't stick with it....I would give anything to play again I really do miss it A LOT!!!!!!!

I love violin music. Wanted to learn to play but we couldn't find a teacher willing to teach me; same with the piano. Managed to get lessons with the recorder and cornet, but I wasn't very good and quit them (asthma and wind instruments don't go together well, and having my brothers tease me to the point of tears whenever I tried to practice at home didn't help).
