Well, I will be spending the next two week in what some may call the land of paradise - Hawai'i. You all will be pleased to know that I did bring my violin and plan on practicing at least a little bit. I have a performance coming up in late January, so I have to be practicing for it. Do any of you have hints on practicing for a performance when you really don't like the pice you are playing and frankly are quite tired of practicing it? The piece itself is great - Mozart 3, but I have been playing it for eight or nine months along with various other material, of course.

All the best to all of you!
