and this is my story . . .
The lights of the bandstand glow against the darkening sky, lively tones of the violins dancing on the evening air. The merry tune is well suited to the May Day mood. I gaze at my husband, so focused on his playing he will not see me …
In truth, James rarely does see me, for he’s a violinist of perfection and married to his music. But, after three years of loneliness, my musical appreciation has waned.
Tones of the violins soar as I turn away. The note on the kitchen table will not pluck too fiercely at James’ heartstrings.
