Making an oboe reed requires a clear, calm, and patient mind.


  1. I don’t think I even KNOW an oboist with a ‘clear, calm and patient mind’.

  2. No kidding! That twitter quote just cracked me up! 🙂

  3. But it’s true – you have to have a clear, uh, wait…mind-thingie! And be calm. And…oh never mind, I don’t have time for this.

  4. I’m definitely not feeling any of those things today, but I have no choice … reeds are a must right now. Back to work!
