You feel its brassy stare across the room.
Behind the closet door.
Under some wrapping paper.
Next to an empty gift bag.
You know it’s there. Sitting. Waiting.
Right where you left it when you moved, or graduated, or had not enough free time.
You’ve been thinking about it lately:
How great you felt;
The camaraderie, that unity of purpose, that social interaction.
You spent years learning.
You think of your teachers–
So much joy.
So much satisfaction.
A compulsion manifests: you feel its gravity pulling you toward the closet door.
Open the door; see it.
Open the case; look at it in its static beauty. Hear choruses of
angels singing. Rays of light emanate from it.
Close the case, pick it up, and grab the keys to your car.
Put the case in your car and drive it to Mitchell Fine Arts Center at Transylvania University.
It’s September 7, 2017, 7:30 PM. Walk up the stairs to the band room.
Open the case. Assemble it.
Walk over to where you see others.
Sit with them. Make music with them.
Join the band.
Feel great about yourself.
