Frequently, it can feel like our creative worlds are tightly wrapped around success and the next big project. But what do we do when something unimaginable happens? When our ability to play music and interact with the music world is altered? Today I talk to cellist Laura Armstrong who last October was involved in an accident and has subsequently had to learn to play the cello slowly all over again. We also talk about grief and why it is easier to talk about physical injuries rather than mental issues.
