I thought I had recovered from my mugging the other night, but I'm still uptight. I wanted to go to the gym and burn off my extra energy today, but I didn't make it. Tomorrow, for sure. Now I'm going to play my violin just for fun. No goals, hard work, etc. I'll just follow wherever my violin leads me.


My violin understands me. I picked up O’Neill’s, a very large collection of Irish tunes, and opened it to a random page. The tune that greeted me was called “My Little Bag That Was Stolen.” I played for a long time and now I feel better. I hope my neighbors will forgive me for playing until 1 AM.
