Neck a lot less sore. All that started subsiding as the day passed. This for the benefit of anyone who reads this on a more-or-less daily basis.
Another muscle I almost forgot about is the splenius, which is on the back of the neck and controls back and forth motion. It doesn't hurt too badly either..
Music news. The calendar is starting to fill up just a bit. Three dates in September and one in October. There are two renderings of Have You Met Miss Jones on my YouTube page. I've been practicing a bit more, and feeling those nice skills returning.
Even if you've been playing for 50 years, you still have to practice to keep up your technique. At least I have to. The first thing I lose when I don't practice is time--that is, time-feel. And it's the first thing I get back when I resume my practicing.
A luncheon today, and a lesson on Sunday. Otherwise, my calendar is squeaky clean. Zestfully clean. September is a little busier, but still plenty of 'wide open spaces'.
Gotta ring off here. Time for Lumosity. This is another daily ritual, the cognitive skills games. Every day there are five games for me to play(and I can pick alternates if I don't like the ones they've selected for me), all geared around a different encephalic function: problem solving, attention, speed, memory, language. A workout for the mind.
As ever, thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. Happy Friday to you! More later.
