I have often had the romanticied notion of playing a fiddle on a roof in the middle of the night.
But then I start thinking about the practicalities.
What roof? Would there be enough light to see by? If it was windy, how would I stop the music being swallowed by the darkness? If it rained how would I protect those notes from crashing into each other and creating a dischord? Would people honestly be gladdened and delighted to wake up to the sound of a stranger creating honeyed music at night?
Besides, I would have to learn the fiddle.
