Updating bit of Anja




Anja played viola at a little concert in a Senior Citizen's Center. She practiced bit before the concert started while she usually used to play with other girls without even thinking about the practicing. I did not mention anything about this practicing or warm up a bit before the concert. It seems that she suddenly realized that she should do something like this.

She was practicing as usual yesterday. I was not completely following and sitting with her. When I came to her room, I saw her playing her viola while trying to write down some thing on her note book. She told me she is trying to figure out the notes of a nice song. Her thought sounds to me as if she is composing seriously (she had made some simple songs herself already before) , for this time. I know I exaggerate it quite a bit of my thinking. The truth is I just sense her growing up everyday, her behavior, her way of walking , her face expression, and so on....


Senior citizens come early and watch the kids with a smile on the face.

How lovely to play a concert for older people - a nice way to spend some time - well done to Anja. And I agree - sometimes it is better to let children develop their own sense of what is needed than to try to tell them!

A concert! K is so far away from concerts, she is still at the 'pluck pluck' 'eeeeehhhhsqueesqueeheeeh' stage with her violin. Maybe Anja can teach her??
Yes, you can tell by little moments they are growing up, can't you? Especially when they are by themselves, writing, looking, talking to themselves.
Your Anja seems to glow sweetness from the inside out! I hope one day you can videotape her and her own music! She's talented + beautiful.. total heartbreaker : )
