Time passing

Mark as a eight year old playing the cello with great concentration at the little school of music (now long gone) in Ormskirk, Lancashire.
I took a picture of him this morning: same cello, same concentration and just a few wrinkles . . .
Listening to him re-learning this instrument is strangely moving, and quite extraordinary. All the knowledge seems to still be in his head alongside all the other music, notes and rhythms he stores up there, although he hasn't picked up the bow for . . . well, a very long time.
