This is a short memoir I wrote in my undergrad years when I first began to have issues with Dystonia. I have chosen to include it because it highlights the beginning of my directional shift towards creative writing and away from classical music performance. It was bittersweet to say the least.
From this story, I worked to retrain my hand and nerves and eventually took the inspiration I felt from this work and crafted it into a yet unpublished book. I believe this work highlights my earlier writing style and is a glimpse into the events that set me on my current path.
