So I realize I tend to take things wrong. If someone says, “I really like what you’re wearing,” I hear, “You usually look awful.” If someone says, “Great solo!” I hear, “It’s about time.”

So maybe I’m the only one who struggles with this picture.

But no … Dan saw it too, so it’s not just me. (For once!) Whew!

It just looks as if the conductor is flipping someone off. The facial expression doesn’t help.

But I’m troubled, and I see things that aren’t there sometimes. I can be a bit nuts. We all know that. 😉

Later today I have two Symphony Silicon Valley rehearsals for this weekends concerts, an two days of Kiddie Concerts. A bit of Ravel and a lot of Copland. And Kodaly too, but that doesn’t count since I don’t play that work.


  1. could be an index. give him the benefit of the doubt.

  2. Patricia Mitchell

    Yeah … a friend and colleague said she didn’t see that at all.

    See how I am? Just always seeing the bright side! 😉

    Btw, your reeds and case are FINALLY on their way back to you. Can you believe it?
