It's Monday! Normally it doesn't mean a thing to me- if anything, a day to always celebrate, since I no longer have work-but today is spent, at least in part, at the Dentist's office.
Yesterday was a day of sterling virtue, in that I exercised and practiced. One new recording, which I may post to YouTube at some point today. Mainly, some work getting my chops back to where they should be. No matter how long you've played an instrument, you still have to practice to keep those skills up.
Also nice and rested today. In bed at 12:20, up at 7something and then 8. Some dreams, which are lost to waking consciousness but still lingering under the surface of my awareness.
My Guestbook entries are back to the misdirected stuff: heiresses with fortunes to give away; financial advice; other raves. The business from last week is largely forgotten(and even forgiven, to an extent)but still leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Still, you can learn something from pretty much anyone. From this one I learned to pare my responses down even more(I honestly thought I was sending a nice brief email!). So, next time....
Again, I'm enjoying the feeling of being well-rested. The trick is just getting myself calm enough. Mellow doesn't run in the family, so I have to work at it. But with a little work(sometimes a lot)I can achieve it.
Something like working to improve my guitar playing. You put in the work, the sweat, and after awhile, begin to see results. Same with sleeping. Nice to know that you can make changes for the better in your life by working at it.
That's probably more than enough from me. Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. More later.
