it's never too late, you're never too bad, never too old, never too sick to start from scratch and begin again.-choudhury
(I keep typing 'blooger', which makes me think 'booger', which is not at ALL what I'm intending to write about...)
ANYWAY, I knew it had been a long time since my last entry, but in the intervening weeks Blogger has changed formats, and I am feeling strangely disoriented by those changes... not that I'm blooging (v. To blog poorly) less, but I'm over here a few times a week, and to do it well takes a little more thinking somehow, than typing my feelings and daily routine... the normal pre-season drivel seems less compelling than it used to.
(But that's not stopping me from dishing some out right about now, is it? NOPE.)
So. Disoriented is a good way to describe the last several weeks. Working backwards from yesterday: my first 12+ hour workday of the season (which ended with some of the best piano playing that I may have ever heard. Elegant, thoughtful, but just enough raw passion to make it truly exciting.). An overfull work week with lots of good things advanced, a Skype lecture with a local university (!) and with a fantastic dress rehearsal loaded in? Awesome. And also, taxing. Especially when riding on the heels of a trip to Boston (opera! reconnecting with an old roomie!) and a less-than-glorious sinus infection.
(Huh. Maybe this is in fact an exercise in 'blooging' in both content and nasal iterations...)
Things are getting busy. People arrive soon. I have to-do lists on three different platforms. The weather moves between summer and fall.
Today has been a little unsettled, but lovely. Hubster let me sleep in this morning. I went to the gym, and there was a class that was a dance class like I had in college (but with easier steps and waaaaay less range of motion) which made me so very happy. Car is inspected. Dinner plans sadly cancelled, but the Hubs picked up mac and cheese (to which I added truffle salt...I think I may have heard angels sing...), and now we're watching movies and waiting for a break in the rain before walking the dog.
I apologize for the bitchfest. I apologize for the scattered posting... link-o-rama to come soon!
