ON THE BACK BURNER

JAN.26

When I have a good violin lesson, I feel really wonderful. I usually do have a good lesson, but sometimes I hit wrong strings, I sound squeakier than usual, my timing if off and I just don't feel good about my lack of accomplishment. My teacher is always supportive , patient and encouraging. She never lets on when I probably damage her ear drums with my high pitched squeak. But today, I really had a good time. I have decided that I don't want to play second violin . So I played first violin music and got to hear a melody . It was exciting. A melody. After I would play a challenging section (for me ), my teacher would praise me. I had to ask her not to, because I get so excited that I mess up the next few notes. To add even more pleasure to my lesson, I got a new music book with classical pieces. I am so excited that I had to hold myself back from playing more after I got home. It's a good feeling to feel good about yourself.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
