Last night I finished my exam, all this time of whining and complaining about having to read and study, but now that's it's done I'm going to really miss all of it. Learning African dance, playing with curious instruments all over the world, talking about Chinese music, interviewing musicians and writing about Indian music was not easy, but what an experience!
Sometimes a seemingly incredibly dull and boring read can open up a entirely different perspective. Indian music for example, the discovery of it for me was like a person who had spent her life on land had all of a sudden discovered the ocean, and wondered what was beneath it and what was on the other end. It's moments like these that continue to make life interesting, it makes one hopeful to know that there are more discoveries and realizations in life than what simply meets the eye.
