Strange, very strange day. My Grandma passed away, but I went to my lesson anyway. And my teacher said that my Bach was "beautiful" and...get this..."in tune". Coming from him, well, I don't know if that has come from him. He's one of my favourite people in the world, and I think it a virtue that he is honest. It make compiments worth gold. Also, I asked about a particularly greusome passage because I have to crunch my finger to get both strings at the same time. He said that it sounded good and was o.k...he'd stop me if it needed fixing. I didn't tell him about my g-ma, so I know that he wasn't trying to make me feel good. It makes for a strange balance. I also think it strange that I played so well while under such emotional shock. I'll dissect that later. All is well in Jenniferland at the moment. Making cornbread for the husband.
Sals,
JW
