Chatterbox: Down to Earth

Hi all!  I’m new here so I decided I’d better introduce myself.

I’m really excited to meet all the CBers and to see all your postings.

I love playing violin, dancing, practicing Aikido, reading, writing, listening to music and being outdoors.  Some things I like are: sunsets and sunrises, dawn and twilight, the night sky, imagining things and birds of prey(especially Peregrine Falcons).

I have been playing violin for quite a while now and it’s one of the things I couldn’t live without.  I don’t think I want to be a professional violinist but I plan to keep playing my whole life.

I am a little overprotective of my instrument because I care for it a lot.  Is anyone else like that?

Music is a really big part of my life.  There is almost never a day when I don’t listen to or make music.

That’s all for now! See you around CB.

Hi and welcome, Pregrine! Out of curiosity, what is Aikido?

Hello cerinthe!  Aikido is a Japanese martial art.  It focuses on energy and trying to identify a situation before it gets bad.  If you are interested in learning more about it try reading The Way of Aikido by George Leonard.  It’s a great book.

Hi, Peregrine. It's nice to meet you. Also, it's great to meet another bird. Pygmy-owls are not technically birds of prey, but still. Bird names unite!

Is there any particular type of music that you enjoy playing/listening to? And have you ever written a song? I have written a few, but my favorite is a flute (me) piano (my sister) and cello (my cousin) trio, named Astra. I don't think it was very good, but it as fun to write. 
Hope to see you around!

Hello PygmyOwl!  It’s nice to meet you too.  I like your name.

I enjoy playing and listening to bluegrass/folk and classical music.  I mostly play classical music but often I will play bluegrass for fun.

I wrote little snippets of songs when I was first learning how to read music but I have never written pieces or songs.  I would love to hear your trio.  Why did you name it Astra?

See you around CB!

Hi Peregrine! 

I love music too. I play clarinet and sing. I have been singing since I was really little. I only started clarinet a couple years ago, but I really like it. 

I also love to read! What are some of your favorite books? I like the Wings of Fire series. I also like A Dog's Purpose and the other two books in that series.

Hope to see you around!

My favorite books are the Swallows and Amazons series by Arthur Ransome.  I also really like books by Jean Craighead George.

See you around!
