Usually I listen to the music of the instrument that I'm currently working on. But since November, I've instead been learning French by listening to cd's from the library. Over the years I've heard all of the same songs over and over again, and while I still enjoy my own music collection, I thought learning a new language would be a good way to redeem the time while I work. Plus, I've learned in my life that being able to make an instrument that someone loves to play, being able to play a toe-tapping or tear-jerking melody, and being able to communicate with someone in their own language, are truly rewarding experiences. Au revoir.
