Yippee!

November 8, 2018, 6:47 PM · Just got off a plane with my chamber orchestra. It's midnight in Poland and I'm wide awake. Today, I play solos for the president at 18;30. Eighteen hours from now—right after two days without sleep.
Maybe if I'm lucky, I'll nap sometime today.
What fun!

Turned out it had been advertised for the following week so nobody came. Good concert though.
