In panic mode.....



Why is it that making these takes years off of my life? Surely the fact that I am such a procrastinator has nothing to do with it.....and not much to do this past Sunday..and Monday except a little teaching. Damn procrastination. Damn these pieces! Have you heard Rachmaninow's (yes I know it isn't the Americanized spelling) Symphonie in e minor? The third movement is just glorious...the rest of the piece is brutal. I am going to die tonight. Of my own accord or having a baton stuck in my eye? Which, I am not sure of yet.



A drawer full of sharpening stones, ceramic sticks.....knives......I WANTED to play flute. That was my first choice. Damn band director. I was tricked into the oboe, you see. "Well...only smart kids can play oboe" he said. I fell for it...proving, of course, that I WASN'T!!! Apparently, I am still not. ;0) Gotta go practice.......

I remember my brother making oboe reeds when he was in middle school/high school....he actually sliced through a tendon in his hand once (ouch!).

Anyway, hope your performance goes wonderfully!

Oh, is that what that drawer full of medieval instruments is for? Oboe reeds? You'll be fabulous. Relax.

Zephyr, eh? Pretty! Pretty ice storm too.

Oh, you'll do beautifully! And I know the Rachmaninov piece, it's wonderful.
