I'm wondering if I'm not really ready to be performing with our trio, maybe we ought to spend more time just playing together and not worry so much about performance pieces. There is a lot of cello music suitable for playing as a group; music that isn't necessarily performance-worthy, but fun to play nevertheless. I am feeling pretty challenged right now by my lessons and those dang Mooney books, and I'm thinking I should ease off the performance stuff and focus my energies on my lessons for a while. I'd sure feel better about performing further down the road once I've improved my overall playing skills.
In other news, I quit my part-time consulting job this week. The small company I had been working with arbitrarily cut their hourly pay rates by 30% with no notice and an unacceptable explanation. Oh well. We're not really destitute, yet. Que será...
On the other hand, at least the sun came out yesterday, and today. The first time in weeks! It even warmed up to 70F both days.
Sorry to hear about your job. Hope everything's going well for you and your family!
