After gunning through a 2 year plus concert stint, no breaks, sometimes juggling 4 different concerts with prep simultaneously, I finally gave my final concert on April 28th. My next concert isn't until October 28th. I originally said I wouldn't take anything before mid November but you know how these things go. . . .
What's the first thing I did with my freedom?
Scheduled 2 huge walks per day, added tandem riding whenever my tandem partner and I could align our schedules, brought back the dancing.
The good news is that my tandem partner and I have bullied our way up Logie Trail - a bitch of an opening season climb on a tandem. The good news is that I have no "off" switch - can go and go and go from one activity to the other.
The bad news is that I've no desire to tackle home and hearth chores. . . . . rectified this morning when I emailed a friend who boot-camps me into some sort of clean and organized environs if not outright submission.
I don't really have to start practicing diligently again until September. Will I last that long? Probably not. Elliot Carter's Sonata for Cello and Piano calls.
Damn that Siren!
