So here are some of the things I think I might want to do in the rest of my life, some, hopefully, sooner than others! Not in any particular order...
Learn to play the cello. --I know that's not a cello pictured on the right. I played the baritone horn in high school and part of college. I loved the mellow, rich sound and hoped to own my own horn, which never happened. I think the cello is the same type of sound, and it seems like it would be easier to make beautiful solo music with that more than with a horn. --Although, the horn's required breathing would be good for me, so could be a 'win-win.' I still like the idea of drawing across the strings and having the cello ooze some cool and elegant, classical melody. Seems a little classier choice for a "woman of a certain age," who is long removed from sitting in the pep band at football games.
