An article from Slate which describes the general misery of players and builders of acoustic instruments. Page two has a big funny regarding the reed obsession of players of double-reed instruments.
I need to sing again in the fall, with a real, somewhat legitimate chorus/choral group. What would really be good would be if I could get back into a women's group, but I'm not sure that's going to happen. There's one in DC that looks good, but the travel time would be too much each week, with rehearsal ending at 10-ish, I wouldn't get home until 11-ish. Not ok, with school starting when it does. But I think one in Annapolis will be ok, good enough for now.
And I miss people who live far away from me.
