Hurrah, spring is finally here!
Spring break, however, is over and our symphony rehearsed again today. Of course, the items we had polished before break had descended into shambles, and everything we sight-read was gorgeous. I filled in for the principle second violinist - an exhausting experience, indeed, especially considering I haven't practiced more than two hours this week. But everything went fairly smoothly, and there were some downright ethereal moments mixed in among the questionable ones. And what else can you ask for?
Before rehearsal began, the cellist who sits next to me approached me and said, "I like you, but I'm going to hit you."
"Pardon me?" I said.
"I'm a wild bower," she explained, pushing my chair away a few inches from hers. "I'll hit you!"
