That’s a line that Don Draper said in tonight’s Mad Men. Now, don’t worry, I’m not going to give you any spoilers. But I sat there, and I thought, what would I do? Perhaps I haven’t been as happy lately as I’d like. What would change that? I thought about a whole bunch of different things, things that I enjoy, things that I think I’d enjoy…
(From our concert Friday night. I’m the one holding my head ridiculously high on the far left. I am guessing I was leading the bow?)
I thought, well, it’s the violin. It’s always the darned violin. Nothing beats playing the violin.
Well, let me be most specific. Nothing beats playing Mahler. Mahler Symphony no. 3. If I could do anything, that’s what I’d do. Or Mahler Symphony no. 2. But I’d prefer 3, thanks.
