I can breath again

April 16, 2007 at 3:07 AM

I'm done auditions! I had a long day at UBC yesterday (almost 5 hours) by time you including time to warm up for the audition, the audition, the theory exam and then the aural exam. It's good to be done and no longer have that stress to be practicing and prepared. My hand will finally get a chance to heal! The drive home yesterday evening (all 6 hours or so of it) were interesting! I drove on the highway through Manning Park. It poured rain, it was sunny, it was snowing.....quite the weather but I managed to snap the below picture just north of Chilliwack (not while driving).

Must have been a pot of gold fell out of a truck on the overpass.

Wow, usually rainbows don't show up too well in photographs, that's great! My son was asking me if I'd ever walked through a rainbow, and I told him I wasn't sure if that was possible, considering that rainbows depend so much on angles of perception. So did you drive through this one? :)

I like it when the rainbow comes off the hood of your car. Look it's a pot of car!

The rainbow was very intense! we didn't drive through this one, but I've been close enough to see where one was that touched the ground before. I've got another really amazing rainbow shot from when I studied in Quebec a couple summers ago!

That rainbow is gorgeous. I hope it is a sign of good luck for you.

I tried the two links you gave, and they didn't work. Would you please check them?

Hmm...the links worked before, I'll try and edit it and make it work again.

Congratulations! UBC is a great place to study, music or otherwise. When will you find out the result?
