Hawai'i

January 1, 2006 at 9:09 PM

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!

It's good you're following my advice. You won't regret it. ;)

Funny, I'm working on Mozart #3, too. Don't feel too bad if you let your violin take a vacation, too.

Those aren't stars, Jim, they're UFO's.

I'm a Broncos fan, but I also really like the Bengals...that'll be a good matchup...I'm actually rooting for them to make it to the superbowl. Cinderella story, that.

Yes, indeed. I officially personally bestow the title of Hot Violin Chick.
