speak on, L.M.

"Under his chin he held old Abel's brown battered fiddle; his eyes, too, were fixed on the ceiling; and he, too, saw things not lawful to be uttered in any language save that of music; and of all music, only that given forth by the anguished, enraptured spirit of the violin."
-L.M. Montgomery "Chronicles of Avonlea"

Leave it to Lucy Maud to perfectly describe why I love the violin.
Of course she can put into words exactly what my simple brain can not.
