I’d be blogging about now. And watching some sort of Law & Order show (if I have no work at night … and this week all my work is during the day!). Yeah, I watch L&O. What can I say? I get hooked on those kinds of things. But tonight? I’m too darn tired. It turned out that I made a little trip back to UCSC because Jameson needed some things by tomorrow. Thankfully Dan could go along so he drove and I relaxed. (Until RLS hit on the way home.) Wouldn’t ya know Jameson found out he needed some clothing items this afternoon? Had he received the email yesterday we would have saved the trip, gas money, mileage … and missed out on a nice sushi dinner with him. Hmmm. Guess seeing our son and enjoying some good food is an okay thing, yes?

Think on the positive. Think on the positive. Think on the … oh … too tired …

So for now I’m actually going to bed early and I think I’ll continue my reading of Angle of Repose by Wallace Stegner. If I can manage to keep my eyes open. (I read this book a long time ago, and I thought it was time to get back to it.)

Tomorrow I have quartet rehearsal, Santa Clara U., and two private students. Another busy day. I’m sorely tempted to insert a bookstore visit in there to pick up The Rest Is Noise. Seems like I should … don’t you think? The following day (Thursday) is another story … maybe I’ll blog about it later. For now I’ll just say it’s a liquid diet day. (I do wonder how it’ll be to teach three students when I’m allowed no food all day.) Aren’t you sorry you aren’t in my shoes?

Hah! If you want my shoes you can have ‘em. ;-)

I’m just home from UCSC. It was one long drive home; there had been an accident on highway 17, although it had been cleared by the time I came by. Still, the after affects of a collision are always bad on that road. On the way to UCSC I saw some rather reckless driving, which is typical of 17. Add misty rain into the mix, which is what I had on the way home, and it’s almost certain there will be at least one accident. Ah well.

So now that I’m home I have 30 minutes to eat something and prepare for the private students here. It’s a rush-rush-rush sort of day!

Better busy than bored, though.

And welcome to New Yorker readers who landed here because of the Alex Ross article. I hope you enjoy your read (and if you’re an oboe player I hope you enjoy many reeds as well). Drop by any time. I do a lot of rambling as you’ve probably already noticed. I’m pretty darn honest too, so you’re gonna see me in a kind of “bare bones” way … um … I mean in a revealing way … but with clothes. Always.

So there you go.

Now off to warm up for private student #1!
