I really enjoyed seeing this picture of a String shop in Bern, Switzerland. I have a special memory in my mind of sitting in a shop similar to this, trying out different bows not long ago. And, as I played, I could see the people walking past the store front, heads turning to look in as they passed along the street. The store door was kept locked you must 'buzz' to get in. What a special memory, I hope I never forget it.
"Into my heart's treasury....I slipped a coin
That time cannot take....Nor thief purloin.-
Oh, better than the minting...Of a gold-crowned king
Is the safe-kept memory
Of a lovely thing." Sara Teasdale
