Overview
Olivia quiere tocar el violín. Ella quiere que la música fluya de sus cuerdas, la abrece y llegue a su corazón. Olivia quiere volar con su sonido; quiere soñar y jugar con él. Pero el violín duerme. A veces se queja, ronca o tose. Olivia insiste una y otra vez, día y noche. Hasta que por fin, el violín comienza a bailar en sus brazos. Vibra y canta. Luego, entre los dos, después de paciencia y mucha práctica, inventan un nuevo momento.

Olivia wants to play the violin. She wants the music to flow from its strings, swirl around her and reach her heart. Olivia wants to fly with its sound; she wants to dream and play with it. But the violin sleeps. Sometimes it complains, snores or coughs. Olivia insists again and again, day and night. Until at last, the violin begins to dance in her arms. It vibrates and sings. Then, between the two, after patience and lots of practice, they invent a new time.
