|There's nothing quite as soothing as music, in my humble opinion. My niece plays the violin. I can't help but feel its touch inside my spirit. Beautiful in every way, Carolee.

You touch the strings of beauty and love with such a tenderness.

|it is you who are the meastro here Carol, you have penned us into the sensations of the violinists magic and as if we were dancing in the lyrical vibrations she stirs from her soul.

|You brought out the smoothness of the fingers as they touch and fondle and stroke the strings of the violin in such as way that makes me feel that I am sitting in the same room with her and listening to her magic. For magic is what musicians bring to the table as they perform for us. Great poetry, Carol. Great!|
