I hope I haven’t told this story before, but here goes: A really long time ago, I was having a lesson on raising. My teacher was trying to get me to loosen up and get away from the strings. She exhorted me to raise higher, so I obliged, just as she was leaning in to look more closely. I hit her right in the face with my fist!! I was mortified. Luckily, I didn’t do any damage, being a bit of a weakling at the time.
