I didn't feel like practicing at ALL today. Bad headache and all-around feeling crappy. Angry at the world and stuff. Any my body hurts. And and and and. So I pulled out some old etude books and decided to play some of them. I forgot how fun the Mazas etude book is. It is ancient for one thing and I dutifully taped up the covers and such. Before I knew it, an hour had passed by while I worked on trills and sightreading in higher positions (a thing I have trouble with) and scalar work and some just fun bowing excercises. Hm. Maybe I'll go at it later again. Oh, and after the etudes, just for good measure, I played the Prelude. For the first time in FOREVER I got through it with no memory slips. I don't know how it happened. I know it was a fluke. ANyhow.
