flute is life

my flute teacher said during my first lesson,
"flute is life" and I laughed at the idea of how
playing a long tube with holes could represent life
until I played this long tube with holes and
understood her sensitivity to every mood, every
tension, the mood and rhythm of every day,
how I struggled with power versus aggression,
how fear showed up in my sound, how fighting
against did not result in victory, how hard it
is to just relax and enjoy, how much playing
flute is just like life.
