guitar

things in flavworld of late

Not posting as often as I think I should do -or even as often as I think I do, I'm realising.

Have probably mentioned that I find myself embroiled in a bizarre fight facing one of the largest multinational corporations in the world, Shell which bought First Utility which used to supply me with electricity, gas and astronomic bills and a mess with the gas meters in the building that I thought was a problem dead and buried and has resurfaced back from the dead to give me grief and charge me eight thousands pounds because apparently I have never paid for my gas.

OTOH, I have now got the second dose of the vaccine so feeling a bit more reassured about those things although regarding normal life... who knows when and how that may happen. Just waiting to see what will happen.

Still teaching guitar in those schools and both are becoming a nuisance in different ways -but I need their money and also do have good pupils in both that I wouldn't want to leave stranded. But mostly I need that money.

Bought a digital piano (cheapest Casio with hammer-action keys, in instalments) when my midi keyboard died. So I decided to do something about my wasted two years learning piano as a secondary subject and have been practising -which has taught me a lot, things I knew but one tends to forget, about what my beginner guitar pupils go through.

The night is dark and full of terrors. But it also shows us the stars in the sky. I'm on Dreamwidth at http://flaviomatani.dreamwidth.org/ -do follow me there if you can.
