Guess the piece! Trying to remember how it goes in a practise room, before a spontaneous charity performance, having not played it for a decade! #underpressure #classicalmusic #guessthepiece #violin #violinist #greenroom
@megs24601 That time we sang in an opera!! And got told off for trying on the Vegas tail feathers in the dressing room. (I only agreed to sing a solo because I got promised a pirate haha 😂 ) #funatsea #classicalmusicfestivals #pirates #violinist #operetta
Dad: Remember that time when you let me take you on a 16-hour train to watch a 16-hour opera which turned out to be offensive to watch yet glorious to listen to, so me and our friends protested and wore masks, and you were very Britishly embarrassed and pretended not to be with me especially when I chased after that British politician to lecture him about his cuts to the arts, and even though they added gratuitous sex and violence and inflatable crocodiles to Wagner, THEY FORGOT THE RAINBOW, which is the best bit in the plot, but then we came out of the theatre and GOD GAVE US ONE ANYWAY?! Remember that? He knows how it is supposed to end. #bayreuth #disaster #opera #rainbow #Godknows #fathersday #family @rodrigoruiz1988 @pilar.rz
Always viewing the world from the same perspective. Happy Father's Day Dad! #rightwayup #upsidedown #fathersday #fathers
This old photo has inspired me to cut myself a fringe/bangs. Wish me luck. If it goes wrong I can always hide behind my violin. violin #hair #haircut
5 years ago today- that time when I played at the FA Cup Final and got caught on the big screen ⚽️ (I had wondered why the make up artist had spent so long on my eyeliner!!) #football #soccer #violinist 
@megs24601 I can't believe your Dad managed to capture this photo!
I used to love getting booked for a concert on a cruise ship. I LOVE BEING ON A BOAT! Which is a good thing; I got so scared on my last transatlantic flight, that I may have to go back by sea!

'Earth, 114 million years ago, one morning just after sunrise: the first flower ever to appear on the planet opens up to receive the rays of the sun... Seeing beauty in a flower could awaken humans, however briefly, to the beauty that is an essential part of their own innermost being, their true nature. The first recognition of beauty was one of the most significant events in the evolution of human consciousness. The feelings of joy and love are intrinsically connected to that recognition. Without our fully realizing it, flowers would become for us an expression in form of that which is most high, most sacred, and ultimately formless within ourselves. Flowers, more fleeting, more ethereal, and more delicate than the plants out of which they emerged, would become like messengers from another realm, like a bridge between the world of physical forms and the formless. They not only had a scent that was delicate and pleasing to humans, but also brought a fragrance from the realm of spirit." (from A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle). 🌸 Did you know it takes 60,000 roses or 2,160,000 rose petals to make just 1 ounce of rose essential oil!? (That's DoTerra, not the oils you find in the shops!)
🌸Did you know you can use rose oil for depression and skin health?
🌸Did you know Queen Victoria ate rose petal sandwiches for tea??!

I seemed to be able to play guitar when I was blonde. Or was it the fairy wings?? #fairygodmother #guitar #fairywings
When I actually wore fairy wings on stage. Should this always be my stage attire? #fairywings #violin •

I saw this medicine chest from 1830 in a museum in Cornwall. Glad there are some familiar friends like Lavender, but not sure about the bottle marked "Poison"!! Glad I have my modern medicine chest of plant remedies at home . I can help you make one too. Plants should be our first line of defense before the doctor. This is how we save the NHS! 
This medicine kit belonged to explorers Richard and John Lander, who took it to Africa and found the course of the River Niger. Sons of a Cornish innkeeper, every schoolchild in Nigeria learns about them!

"For the greater part of human history, and in places in the world today, common resources were the rule. But some invented a different story, a social construct in which everything is a commodity to be bought and sold. The market economy story has spread like wild fire, with uneven results for human well-being and devastation of the natural world. But it is just a story we have told ourselves and we are free to tell another, to reclaim the old one.  One of these stories sustains the living systems on which we depend. One of these stories opens the way to living in gratitude and amazement at the richness and generosity of the world. One of these stories asks us to bestow our own gifts in kind, to celebrate our kinship with the world. We can choose. If all the world is a commodity, how poor we grow. When all the world is a gift in motion, how wealthy we become." from Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer.
