Here, there and now--the deer are listening--is my act together yet?

July 23, 2010 15:22

It's been too long since I've been back here. So here I am now-- From there to here... So much has changed in my life-- and I am again building up a studio, this time in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. There are strings players hidden up here everywhere I go. While having a crown reglued-- my new dentist confesses that he is a cellist! While getting fingerprinted for Wisconsin Teacher's Licensing, the tech told me all about her neighbor in the Central Wisconsin Orchestra. I am glad to be here-- the air is so nice and it is seldom hot in the summer. It was hard to leave my studio in Naperville IL but I felt it was time for me to leave, and my husband had the chance to take a job in the Eagle River area-- where we both have always wanted to be. I had been there for quite a long time and this last batch of students really were hard to leave. I am getting my act together up here, day by day-- playing on the back deck as the deer munch corn at the feeder, and feeling very grateful. I know that some of my former students read this site-- I hope they are all doing well.
