You know how you should never leave a reed sitting on a music stand if you are leaving the area? You know how teachers—teachers like yours truly—warn against this? You know what can happen to a reed sitting on a stand if you bump the stand?

Yeah. That.

So I do have more than one reed of course, but the one I was most pleased with is the one that fell. Of course.

Gee. Guess what I’m doing today?

While I do that I’m listening to oboe recordings. How is it that every oboist I’m listening to sounds as if he or she has the most perfect reed? Hmmm. How annoying of those musicians flaunting their good reeds on their recordings.

Back to work … back to work …
