My work life is crazy busy right now; it always is at the end of the year. Sadly this past week, I found that too many twelve hour days can be incompatible with other pursuits. For the first time since I brought it home, I went two days without playing the violin. I don’t want to beat myself up too much – life often gets in the way of best intentions – but I find it significant and I definitely missed it and don’t want to let it pass without mention. But I’ll be practicing by 10 am today, and straight through to my Wednesday lesson I have a clear line of sight to daily practice.
On another subject, I anticipate the arrival of the family violin I mentioned in a prior post via FedEx tomorrow. I look forward to getting it and having it checked out. At a bare minimum the bow needs to be re-haired – I’m hopeful it will be playable, but I won’t know until the professionals tell me. I’m trying to temper my excitement.
Thanks for reading.
