when I’m so angry at myself regarding my playing that I simply shouldn’t blog about it.

So I won’t. 🙁


  1. Well, you just DID! 😉

    I know exactly what you mean; all musicians share this frustration at one time or another. There have been times when I’ve felt like throwing my horn against the wall. But somehow I refrain from doing so. Things are usually better the next time I pick the damn thing up!

  2. Yeah, I know I did. I think this blog helps me cope or something. (It probably also loses me gigs and students, but oh well!)

    This is a crazy life sometimes, you know?

    I pick the oboe up for our final Eugene Onegin performance at 3:00 today. So there you go. We’ll see what happens! (Or we’ll hear what happens, anyway.)
