For two months now, I have worked towards performing in the Zuzuki String's Contest in our area. The contest was held on Saturday. I played "The Swan" by Camille Saint-Saens and Minuets by Bach. Surprisingly, the judge graded my performance "Superior +". This means I will be going to State in April. While I was playing, I wasn't thinking, "I wonder if I'll win". I was thinking..."I am just enjoying playing". What a blessed day...the hard work has paid off and the experienced has energized my desire to practice more faithfully.
