this piece is dedicated to one of my closest friends, amy. the art that pours from her inspires and motivates. amy plays the violin. no wait, amy owns the violin. she introduced me to the violin as an intrument of inner peace. her quartert, the opal string quartet just posted some gorgeous live recordings. please take a minute to listen, quiet the chaos of the day, and energize your soul. thank you amy, thank you franklin, thank you ginger, thank you kara.
