just spent three hours practicing oboe and English horn for the symphony audition. I’m not sure I’ve ever practiced that much in a month before. Must be the audition nightmare I had last night….two more weeks until the audition!

… but a TRUE dozen shows remaining.

This has been a challenging summer, to say the least, but I’m managing to muddle through, and once I’m into the fall this blog will resume full speed ahead, I hope. I do apologize for the lack of postings recently. Circumstances interfered. Go figure!

Meanwhile, why don’t you enjoy some orchids? (Taken at a farmers’ market on a walk between shows.)
