life lately

We've been having record-breaking high temperatures for March... like in the 70's and 80's! Unbelievable. I love having the feeling of spring in the air. This past weekend we had beautiful sunny days.

(Hastily snapped with my iPhone in a parking lot on my way in to a gig.)

Beside our front steps, a bunch of crocuses have come up!

Sadly, I don't have much time to spend outside appreciating it all.

This past weekend was spent teaching, working, practicing, studying... the usual.

I played in a pit orchestra for a production of Chicago, which is a fairly entertaining show.

Although with charts like this one, I did find myself wondering... is this what trombone players feel like?

Hey, I'm a violinist! Enough with these rests... give me some notes!
{yes, that's two pages of blocks of rests, vamps of rests, and... two measures to actually play.}

Things are busy, busy, busy.

I can't wait for my master's recital and oral exam to be over and done with. It might be disastrous (and at this point that outcome seems quite likely), but a week and a half from now, at least it will be over, one way or another.
