Monday Morning Lavender
You'll be glad to know that my morning crankiness dissipated yesterday, as crankiness always does, and the student concert turned out to be enjoyable and surprising in many ways. I felt a little guilty for grousing, given how well the day turned out. So I take it all back. Well, most of it.
The concert included some of my favorite music: Erik Satie's "Gymnopedie No. 1" and Debussy's "Reverie," for example. And the selection was diverse -- a Zulu folk song, a percussion ensemble, Louis Prima's "Jump, Jive an' Wail," and "My Funny Valentine" were among the 23 pieces on the bill.
Dinner last night was fun, too. Not really a dinner so much as a post-concert pub debriefing among all the music teachers. I can never contribute much when they're all talking about tonalities and key signatures, but fortunately we also touched on current cinema and summer travel plans.
Today my plan is to get out with my camera. I'm not sure where yet. I haven't had wandering time alone sans dog in many days. Oh, and I still need to do my weekly sub report, which I didn't get to yesterday. Big fun!
