It's amazing how tiring moving is, even when you're only relocating down the hall.
Also, the majority of my random hits here are for people looking up "lezzie", which I find kind of interesting. I'm not sure if I used an unusual spelling or something, but there's a new hit for it almost every time I check.

I frequently find that, for a short period of time, one composer completely takes over my musical landscape. Last year it was Mahler. Right now it's Shostakovitch; I'm performing the 8th string quartet with my fabulous wonderful string quartet on Wednesday (in a bar, prefaced by most of a mass from the 14th century by Guilliame Machaut)and Sunday it's the 15th symphony with Civic. I don't know that much about that piece, but the first movement contains a clip from the William Tell overture that repeats over and over, so I'm sure there's some sort of story there. I don't mean to sound like I'm belittling it, because it's a great and lovely piece, but you have to admit that's kind of odd. Anyway, I'm very happy to be sharing a significant piece of my brain with Shosty right now, so no harm done.

dreams of a better time

The end of last year and the beginning of this one has been kind of hectic so far. The last few days have included a lost wallet, some amazing good samaritans, the only truly enjoyeable new years eve I've had in a loooooong time, and a death in the family. I rang in 2007 in a taxi. But I have high hopes for this next twelve months despite the negative experiences so far. I hope I'm not mistaken.
