I spent almost the entire day today locked away in a hotel room working on some papers I’m writing. I rarely get to be alone except in my car so this has been somewhat of a luxury. I didn’t get much done because I was in dire need of some major relaxation. I basically listened to music while trying to edit what I’ve aready written. I brought my cds in from the car and started loading them into iTunes because I never have time to do that. I forgot how enjoyable it is to just listen to music. Usually, so much of my day is spent practicing and studying music that I never take the time to enjoy it. I love music more than life itself. And now I get to go perform Christmas music for a sold out hall with my orchestra.
