Procrastination is the enemy. A inner dialogue with myself.

I  haven't practiced the Lipinski in weeks... I  should be trying to pound out that nasty sulla tastiera thirds passage, or maybe working on that triplet passage to make it sound like marching ants, but instead... here I sit, only talking about it. (casts down head)  This is why I have such little output. I swear I'm going to destroy my computer one day, and the TV. Set my space up like a prison and get down to serious business... One day...

but right now it's so pretty outside...

hmm, maybe I'll go outside...

Go on, play outside, it can't hurt, maybe you'll get inspired...

No! I must practice.

No you don't, you need to live a healthy life, with nature.

Well, maybe...

I was going to procrastinate once, but I never got around to it.

I know how you feel.  So many things to do, so many things to read on, so much less frustrating than that Bach passage.

I'll have to keep telling myself, "You _are_ getting better, you _are_ getting better..."  Then maybe practising won't seem quite so boring and frustrating.

Just a couple more postings first...

Not to much practicing and getting away from it is always a good thing to do. If you enjoy life,frienship, it can be very much rewarding. Because playing the violin means also to express beautiful things,about human experience.
