A brilliantly sunny day out there today. Still a bit nippy, especially compared to what we had.
This is one of my favorite parts of the day, waking up with a nice big cup of coffee and writing this drivel. As I've said in here, I have a slow metabolism for the first couple hours I'm up. When I was working, the morning people in the office used to really grate on me for those couple hours.
And now, being all retired and all, with no morning chatterers to swoop in and harsh my mellow, my a.m's are nice and peaceful.. I can wake up at my own snail's pace, as opposed to being jarred into awareness.
Music News. Nothing new on YouTube, but I've been playing along with Spain of late ,and pretty much have it down. I remember Light as a Feather from the early 70's, how it influenced so many musicians.
I got the guitar back out last night, and it's funny that even if you play all the time, you feel rusty if you miss even a day. Felt like I cleared away a few cobwebs. The thing you lose is the looseness. When you don't play, your playing "stiffens". This is how I felt when I first started playing last night.
The challenge is balancing my exercise regimen with my practice schedule. Still trying to get 4-5 exercise days every week, and continue to practice every day.
Working on it. And I guess that's all I had to say this morning. Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. Happy Sunday to you! More later.
