The Grand Fallacy

My throat is still thoroughly painful and getting really tiresome at this point. I have a show tonight and now I won’t be able to sing. I hope we have enough material to get through the night; I suppose we’ll be extending a few solos and doing some jamming on …

Got a doctor’s appointment for 1:15 today to check the pipes. I guess I’ll head home after I pick up any prescriptions. At least I’ll be able to up my practice time assuming they don’t give me any unexpected bad news.

Throat still really bad; I’m trying to get a doctor’s appointment today. Yeah, right, in my next life maybe if I’m lucky. <sigh> In the meantime it’s really quiet in my office this morning. I think one other person may be in later; until then I have it all to …

OK, I only put in about 35 minutes tonight on practice time. But it was real quality time, not just putzing around. Evie was so cute that I just had to play with her when I got home. They’re only little like this for a while, and it won’t be …

Isn’t it amazing how you can underestimate yourself? I was scheduled to give a talk for a large working group this morning and expected to be ignored, or possibly pelted with vegetables, due to what I thought was the pedestrian nature of the information I had to offer. After spending …

I had a great practice session tonight. I took up where I left off with the rhythmic independence studies in Greg’s Stick Book, and was able not only to master the first three, but also to get through the last three as well. My goal was to be able to …

I have a sore throat today that is bugging me. At least work is going well though. I brought my new Grand Stick in to practice on today. It really needs new strings but fortunately I should be getting some soon. I’ve got to finish selling my other music goods …
