Wonderful article! Thanks for the link; a wonderfully enjoyable read.
I love this quote from the article:
“Life has so many possibilities and such endless richness that unless you just shut down, you’re always going to learn from the environment. For us string players, our instruments are our environment. It keeps stretching us, it keeps demanding of us, it keeps us aspiring to grow.”
It's a beautiful way of thinking about our relationship with our instrument. And to the degree that we open to it, I think that experience is available to all of us.
