If you could do anything, what would you do?

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.
