I'm still reading posts every day, but haven't had much to say, so just left it at that. I've been attending to some of my other obsessions, e.g.
-Bought a new car (an EV, which I've wanted to switch to for some time)
-Jobs in the house and garden (long neglected thanks to my bad back, which I'm coping much better with)
-Getting out and about a bit now that some decent weather's happening
-Practicing violin (and flute) every day still - learning my last piece in Suzuki 3 and (still!!) working on improving my vibrato.
-I've hardly missed a week at the orchestra where I play flute, and been back to the one I play violin a couple of times.
Anyway, I just thought I'd check in and let you know I was still alive.
You sound like a very busy guy. Same activities here, minus the flute and orchestra.
Sometimes there just don't seem to be enough hours in one day to get everything done we'd like to do, especially concerning home improvements.
It's easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself. Johann S.Bach
