So life goes on! :)
Practicing has been going slow, save for one major triumph: I have finally finished Wohlfahrt Foundation Studies Book One (the one with the ghastly green-blue cover). I was all elated about this until I got to remembering there’s a Wohlfahrt Foundation Studies Book Two...which has an equally ghastly cover, except this time it’s red-orange. Argh! But I suppose it’s this way forever - you keep finishing books and then starting books and then finishing and starting, over and over again until you perfect things like the Paganini Caprices or the Brahms concerto. After that, you die. A short summary of the violinist’s life. ;)
But what a glorious life it is!
In other news, my cello sounds like a dying cow. I’m reminded of the “Mister Ed” episode where Wilbur is playing his bagpipes in his living room and his neighbors rush in through the sliding door, saying, “We thought your horse was in pain!” Who knew that classic TV could relate so much to classical music.
Bon voyage and happy practicing. I'll be back to write soon...although you know as well as I do that I'm going to start my next entry "haven't written in here for a while, but"...
