A good day

April 1, 2007 21:30

Today was a good day. Every weekend now is almost like a "rehearsal" for summer. This summer I'll be visiting my folks in sunny West Palm Beach, Florida, and for the first time in over 10 years I'll be with with all of my brothers and sisters. I'm going to be so happy to see them after so many years. My eldest brother, like me, recently got divorced. He was career military and was gone quite a bit. I think it takes a strong woman to be an good army wife, but apparently his wasn't.

I wish I could practice more. I've been having a hard time picking up my instrument, and, lately, when I try to demonstrate for my students it doesn't sound as good as I want. Once Summer gets here I'll be much better with it. I'd like to record some Bach and post it on here. Now that I have a clean garage I have a great place for recording. It's amazing how good the accoustics are in there!
